Bird in a Cage on a Box across the Road

Bird in a Cage on a Box across the Road

While on an evening grocery run walk I spotted this fine specimen of street art across the road.

I say specimen because I seem to have some trouble spelling “graffiti” and it just proved easier until I could get going.

This reminded me I haven’t talked about graffiti in so long I might not remember what it is exactly anymore. So before I could get going on my quest to highlight said specimen I had to Google “graffiti” to remind myself.

Definition hasn’t changed. It’s still drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly in a public place.

Then I looked up illicitly just to make sure it meant what I thought it meant. Yup, forbidden by law.

So I suppose I can’t exactly claim this bird in a cage spray painting on the electrical box (?) was in fact graffiti since I don’t know if it was illicitly painted or not, but I would say it’s a safe bet.


Anyway, I guess there’s nothing more to say. I don’t think a bird in a cage can have too many deeper meanings. Well, unless it’s a statement against all the condos surrounding the piece. Then we’re getting crazy-deep and I just don’t have the time to go there.

Cause I still have to get groceries.
