Mailbox of Love

You know your city has hit the Hipster Big Time when you start to see clever, quirky graffiti in mundane places. The Authorities--never ones to permit much fun--paint over the graffiti, yet up again it pops in a cheeky manner that most likely has The Man stomping and blustering at the audacity of those kids!

Case in point: The lovebird mailboxes at 12th Avenue and Lafayette Street. They lean tenderly towards each other, whispering sweet nothings.

"Love You"
"Love You Too,"


"They can never "
"Tear us apart."

The postal service has painted over their faces and conversation several times, yet some hardened scofflaw criminal, disrespectful of the Rule of Law, repaints the little mailbox people under the darkness of night. Their love will go on!

I think it's great when these types of stories get coverage in the Denver papers. More love for the local characters!
