TATTOOS

A two-legged canvass in crimsons and blues dragons ginormous and suchlike tattoos Diamonds and rare gems that shimmer and shine flowers on long stems with sleek strokes and lines Exciting ones hid in crannies and nooks all that's forbid; condemned by the Book Exposed on the outside pleasing to prudes on out-of-sight hide erotica and nudes DELYSIA HENDRICKS

Very clever poems. On topics I would never think to write about. For a brief moment our paths cross on an open highway where lane changing is allowed. Good work.

Boy, don't you call them tattooes, they are skin illustrations! This reminds me of the short story written by the late Ray Bradbury.

Just got an email of people with tattoos, not one inch of skin showed. This is top notch poetry as you bring out the hidden and what's showing. Enjoyed this so much Lysia. Thanks for your nice visit! :)
