$72,000 Basquiat/SAMO Graffiti

Short on the heels of another Jean-Michel Basquiat painting titled Boy and Dog in a Johnnypump selling for more than 100 million dollars this month, someone purchased one of his collaborative SAMO graffiti pieces for 72,000. 
Basquiat sold this month for 110 million dollars

I was a little confused when I saw one of his paintings sell to a Japanese collector for $110 million a few years back. After research, I found the draw of his story and his work intriguing and gained a new appreciation for his paintings. After viewing one of his works in person at the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, my admiration of his work grew tenfold.

$110,000,000.00 Basquiat
I understand the draw, but once again find myself a little unsettled at the price of the graffiti sale when I look at it. I know, due to the nature of graffiti in general, most works could never be owned or purchased. However...

 What do you think? I'd love to hear your opinion.

One Plus One Is One

Eyes held wide open
Yet vision unclear
Lips often tremble
No words reach your ear
Eyes often blinded
By welling of tears
Tongue also vacant
Beholden to fear
Hold me in your heart
Days, a month, or years
After lifetimes pass
You will find me here
Hold me in your arms
Hold tight, draw me near
My hopes and my dreams
You’re all I hold dear
