most prolific and talented Graffiti Artists. GRAFFITI VERITE's conversations

GV6 The Odyssey
BWP Press, Los Angeles, CA.......The Complex & Compelling Face of Poetry . How are Poets able to conjure provocative mental images, stimulate secret passions, stir-up complex and unresolved personal issues in their audiences? What motivates these Poets to Confess, Create and bend “Reality” ?

Moreover…these Poetic Artifacts are likely the Magical by-products of countless hours of disciplined rewriting and soul-searching. This complicated and laborious process evolves to a point where each and every passionate written word is contemplated, weighed, evaluated and juxtaposed. Every single published "word-bubble thought" promises to be a near-perfect embodiment of that sublime “aha” birth-marked moment of sublime revelation. (continued)
