It’s Black and White

She stands on the stairs,
her walnut black hair’s
twisted and pinned,
sinew tight arms, thin,
bare and white,
a tattoo on the right –
a red heart, and Daddy.
The one on the left
she soulfully regrets.
And she stands
on the corner.

  1. The image and the poem work so well together. I watched the first episode of a “tattoo re-do” show last night. I’m sure there’s enough material for many seasons.
