Ink

Forever doesn’t last as long as it used to.
Now we have lawyers and lasers
to dispense with such annoyances
as longevity
and love.

But this ink is permanent.
This stain is eternal.

I bear on my body
all the color of my hope
and the evidence of my fear.

I will write you on my arms
and remember.
I will keep you within my skin
until together
we wither
and fade away.

-Lo, with bigger plans for belladonna.
