If you say so

I really like this graffiti on this building. The curvature of the graffiti suggests femininity. Most tags have very sharp, angry lines (presumably done by angst-ridden teen boys), but this one has some smoothness that suggests a lot of sass. I like how it stands alone in the rubble of a normally masculine building.

It looks like the foreman (or woman) had a really bad day, expressed the feeling in paint and left the site for good. Sometimes, I'd like to tag my desk with the same expression.

I'm glad I caught it when I did, because that wall was gone the next day.
