Graffiti in South Africa
is not the graffiti
that contaminates
the accessible walls of the US;
it is instead a public forum,
disturbing in its intensity
yet so meaningful.
In the US when one sees graffiti
it is often an indication that someone
has said: "I am; I was here."
In South Africa,
the graffiti remains a sign of the times
but tends to be a fervent question
or a visionary statement
and the message is
"Where are we (together) going?"
