Peeking from the pergola beams are the words from Kate Braverman’s poem, sandblasted and in-filled with paint. The poem, which describes Los Angeles from sunrise to sunset, is obscured by the growth of vines, but can easily be read by any passerby or person sitting under the pergola’s welcoming shade.
The Desert Wind Howls
The desert wind howls through her burned Spanish mouth
Dawn is a tale of intrigue carved in citrus and jasmine
Skies are tainted burgundy over hills of soiled pastels
sunset is lavender as a bruise from a drunken collision.
