tattoos are forever
by Angela Thomas
this queasy feeling in my chest
every time i stop and think about
the way that your chest spans the bed
and rises and falls with great snores
while you sleep. i know this feeling...
i've had it before, but it's been so long.
it almost feels like the friendly sting
of the needle sizzling in and out of sweet
ripe flesh as it deposits deep ink over and over.
the pain, the feeling, is so sharp, so constant,
you forget to breathe. and then it takes over.
you relax into it. and a quiet bliss comes.
it's that moment. it's the peak of orgasm.
it's the quiet. it's your smile. it's you.
