Tattoo

so much more than a mark
under skin
ink indelible

a change on the inside
made outside
more tellable

a statement
a process
connection to culture

step away from the carrion –
run
from the vulture

to a new way
of viewing
the world as it is

and letting you
see
at least some of my “biz”

new connections to
family and “family”
made visible

the things for which clean
and clear skin kept –
now, risible

artist of skin
take your needle – begin
begin to mark “out”

as my soul is within.
