Missing Bansky

I gave short notice to the
street art
graffiti
work of art
outside the subway station.

I figured we’d
see it
catch the R train
walk this way
again at some point.

Then I would have time for
admiration
gratitude
reverence
of found art and misplaced beauty.

But Bansky is what I forget, the
change
impermanence
fleeting nature
of this river ever flowing.
