National Poetry Writing Month 2023, Day 10

Off-prompt, and based on mis-read graffiti.

Lost Ben plastered himself
on the side of a building
for passing motorists to see

He didn’t care
if they spelled his name wrong
as long as it was him they came to see

In the end
nobody knew what it meant
just another tag, a piece of graffiti
with Banksy nowhere to be seen
