Review of "Mural with HUD Housing & School Bus (1980)" by Adrian Matejka

"Mural with HUD Housing & School Bus (1980)" by Adrian Matejka, a creative writing teacher at Indiana University in Bloomington, was offered by's Poem-A-Day on November 22, 2013.  A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:

The poet reveals in his notes that his poem is an ekphrastic love song inspired by the work of David Alfaro Siqueiros' painting "Echo of a Scream" (pictured).  Honestly, I do not see the connection.  I suspect the poet was jonesing for a cigarette at the time he composed the poem, as there are quite a few references to cigarettes in it.
