Chicagoetry: I Wanna Paint Really Cool Murals, Man

I WANNA PAINT REALLY COOL MURALS, MAN

I wanna be a muralist, man.
I wanna paint really cool murals.

Elephants and sausages and very pretty
ladies, and, well, I'm a little off

rainbows these days but
I'll keep an open mind about it.

A lot of murals already have rainbows.
Huge oranges, fat black cats.

But I'll only paint on brick,
I wanna specialize in brick.

Deadly oil paints.
So I'll paint with a mask.

I'll paint in the dark, too.
Wanna get an idea

of the street light
at night.

Probably some sort of protective eye gear.
White, wait, black bib overalls.

Sick ladders, I mean, just a couple of really
beautiful ladders with lots of acrobatic permutations.

Groovy little pick-up truck.
Fuckin' built-in beer cooler.
