She’s hiked the trails of NYC
Climbed the Chicago peaks
Walked the sidewalks around Lake Louise
Reached the pinnacle, the skyscrapers of the Alps

She’s looked into the eyes
Of Bentleys, Ferraris, Peugeots and Renaults
Been blinded by the headlights
Of bears, wolves, moose and hawks

Do you want to see?
Do you want to believe?
Do you want to understand?
It’s all bolted strong
To her exposed brick walls

Get to know
Brooklyn Betty
All from her ornamented walls
You can see where she’s been
See what she’s seen
And interpret her dreams
Draped on her decked out walls

Fantasy made reality
The land of brick trees
Asphalt rivers, rubber grass, Styrofoam beaches
Plastic planets, life on Mars, glass stars, the Sun
The paramount of the rise and fall

People come then they go
People visit for one glance
Others stand for hours
Sinking deeper in a trance

They’re welcome to examine the endless walls
Admire photograph after photograph
Witness the places she’s visited
The kilos she has walked
Deduction, their thoughts
Reasoning out invalidity
Sounding out the pixels into scenes

Everything imagined
Can steal your thoughts
The mind’s eye has been printed
On glossy and matte
Painted over in acrylic, drawn in chalk
Nailed strong to Betty’s warehouse walls

Get to know
Brooklyn Betty
All from her ornamented walls
You can see where she’s been
See what she’s seen
And interpret her dreams
Draped on her decked out walls

Betty’s the bricks that construct the walls
Illustrating what’s on the cards
Seen in the eyes of the coyote
Written on the mountain face
Of snow capped peaks

She’s the mortar in between
Bolstering with variation
Abstract through a prism
Modern hieroglyphics on outside walls
Narrow and tall, in dark and light
Highlighted by the rainbow
Chirping through the thunder clouds

The photographs don’t cry, yawn or laugh
Without an outside interpretation
Speaking through their shades of white and black
Twenty four bits, true color
Eyes are glued and minds are handcuffed
To the apartment wall
Found in Betty’s space, her halls
