Dancing on my Tattoo

June 18, 2017figure-583

 

Kiss the flesh and bone where roses lie

and thorns mourn for the once smooth skin.

trace the curves of the budding stem

just as you do with my spine.

spot each freckle on my sun-kissed wrist

where the ink disappears

and blue veins begin.

your delicate fingertips

dancing on my tattoo

remember that cuts

once laid here too.
