Bike Worship

bike-graffiti.jpg

I saw this graffiti today in the bus mall. I think it’s pretty cool, but
I can’t figure out if they’re Satanist bikers or Pagan bikers.

I’d like to think it’s a group of Pagan bikers. Out there riding in circles, under the full moon at midnight, in Washington Park, naked.

Well, at least that’s my dream.

And now a haiku:

Pagan bikers ride
Naked flesh in the moonlight
Wash my seat at dawn

    There’s a bikeportland.org post on this from a while ago: http://bikeportland.org/2006/08/30/mystery-bike-stencils-pop-up-around-city/

    Apparently it was designed by Colorado messenger Dave Strunck.

    It was very improper of you to glamorize graffiti in this manner.

    Graffiti is a way to remind us that our neighborhood belongs to humans, not faceless walls and machines. It’s art, not vandalism. Reconnect with your primal cave-painting instinct; make your spaces your own.

    Sarah – if it’s YOUR space, go to it. But if you are putting unwanted decoration on someone else’s property, regardless of the aesthetic value, it’s vandalism.
