Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Words scrawled in white,
red brick walls
as canvas, angles
of cheap, old buildings
cut shapes in
the overcast sky.

Plastic windows
magnify struggling
mornings light,
empty billboards
reflect struggling
mourners plight.

Mourning the loss
or their childlike
innocence to the
words within the
free paper, warning of
groping presidents in hoping.

The skies are scraped,
the gutters are full,
lives are lived in boxes
with balconies that
overlook passing trains
carrying faceless pain.

Church spires overgrown
by bland rectangles
housing rows of
computers holding
spreadsheets created
by rows of commuters.

Cameras capture every step
to protect and to incriminate,
whilst change rattles pockets
and we pretend our eyes aren't
in their sockets when sleepers
on the streets offer up their hands.

Offer up my hands in
prayer to a God that
I don't believe in,
the only creator
of these faded concrete
stalagmites is us.
