Tatto You

Posted to Action Poetry

My tattoo is broken
slipping down my arm
sad lazy
cracked like the sidewalk
mesmerized by florescent dreamscapes
cordoned off by shirtsleeves
condemned by the masses
flexed for the fight
peering at the apprentice
poised for the pictures
all while surviving the circus

...and the late night bar
where life began
