Peace slogan on train bridge over Bayview
For the better part of a year, maybe longer, a tiny guerrilla war has played out on the dark grey face of a lonely bridge at the crest of the Bayview extension, the former shoreline of ancient Lake Iroquois. Perhaps it's a ghost from that time who's been scrawling the message "Fight wars not war, destroy power not people," most of the time in red spray paint, always with a peace sign for a period. City cleanup crews with their own rollers and paint keep trying to blot the message out. What secret is it that these clean freaks think they're keeping from our collective consciousness? Back and forth they go, playing chicken on concrete, and tricks on the minds of passersby.
