The woman on the street corner has a spine tattoo
that would make anyone weep if read backwards,
something about having a three-way
with a pair of ghosts who never quite figured out where home was.
The first night I crossed the equator I remembered the dream in which
I was given the wrong…
In today’s news: a chance of rain and a moon that rises like a burnt peach
over the two of us in bed.
Years ago, a close friend got an inner thigh tattoo of a compass rose
To remind her that despite the man who hurt her,
She still knew exactly where she was going.
I am so ready…!
Bless whoever made this.
