Some more urban strip

On my way to the Cinco de Mayo party in Dolores Park, I had a good surprise; at the corner of 19th and Guerrero, I found another stencil on the sidewalk, which belongs to the series of small stories I had begun to follow. I had hit a dead-end and was stuck without indication as to where to look for, and was very glad to find this one out of sheer luck.
I could still not fully decipher it, any Champollion-esque expertise is appreciated!


An owl swoops by her,
a mouse clutched in its talons,
and flies towards Dolores park.
a. Compelled, she follows it.
b. Flustered, she continues on.

b. leads to the illegible one, and then to this one.

Here is my guess:

An owl swoops by her, a mouse clutched in its talons, and flies towards Dolores park.

(a) Compelled, she follows it.
(left)

(b) Flustered, she continues on. (straight)

Thank you - you now deserve to become the Official Resident Champollion! This also made me realize that being color blind barred me from another exciting occupation, besides fighter pilot: Decypherer of Stencils. It seems that the red text stands out pretty well for people who are... color-aware?
