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.

Written for dVerse Poets “Quadrille #133” 44 words including the word “stand” (sans title). Photo by Trevin Rudy on Unsplash cc:00 no restrictions. Shared with @Experimentsinfc #APoemADay on Twitter   ©Misky 2021

  5. 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.
