Your Morning Love Letter

Posted by Ellen

Morning commuters on the el from West Philly to Center City speed past this mural every day; it's part of the rooftop love-letter series by graffiti artist Steve Powers.

If it looks a little odd and maybe incomplete–well, yes, it's missing its opening line; the camera lens wasn't wide enough to catch the entire block-long love letter in one snap.

The full verse is: "I want you like coffee, I need you like juice, I won't put you on the side like bacon, You can have me over easy."

Morning poetry. The coffee might help, but then again it might not.
