How Ironic, Her Angel Tattoo

 

My sister again, briefly,

not distrusted or distanced,

just loved.  I missed her,

wondered how the mauve

cotton candy stuck still in an almost

midnight sky, the midtones low,

early bonds in high contrast,

our present, unreal, more of a liar

than memory. Her cherub smile,

only some hours high in my mind again,

how she mended her wings.

Wear It Like a Tattoo December 7, 2008

My cousin’s 28th birthday was last friday. He celebrated with tattoo artist Dune of  Top Notch Tattoo Studio on 15th & U Street, N.W., Washington, DC. The artistry was apparent as Dune and his tattoo partner drew freehand designs of tattoos to be inked that night with go-go pumping in the background. The color and the energy were amazing!
