The palimpsest left by the missing letters on this sign don’t do much to clue me in to its original meaning. Maybe it meant that “SERVECES” would begin minutes after a candle lighting? Wither the meaning of “GooN IN HIM“, with a tear drop falling from the second O?
Or maybe these letters are just taking a break. It’s exhausting to be a letter in a word that actually makes sense, so once in a while letters like to cut loose and make some chaos like they did on this little sign in Astoria.
I don’t know what these words mean exactly, but this sign was outside a mosque, which would have a prayer room. The stray sequence of exclamation points gives the chaos of this brief attempt at a statement a bit of random glee.
