Savage Beauty

Dark Tattoos

 

she was a lovely one
say 18,19,
a poetess
and every time
a verse came to her
she seemed to stand up
so the world could see
her
and smile at her

but, they didn’t smile
at all

the world never does
more than
a quick glance

if
that.

lay down
lay down and wait like
an animal

my lady

lay down and wait,
it’s years sometimes
until they stand up
to run

years
until you can spring
on them

with
savage beauty.
