reading in the dark

sh sd open yr veins
then yr heart old man
recall sitting in the
tattooist's chair getting

ink done at yr age!
what next a harley
& leathers too
oh shoot me shld it

come to that it all
goes poof! just like
that walk when my
blood sugar dropped

& every step felt like
i was summiting
mt everest i recall
the body is still a text

the tattoos a palimpsest
hard writing in an aged life
longs walks and shortened breath
sugar dropped from the sun

Mmmmhmmm. Excellent closure. Also, thanks for making me look up 'palimpsest' for probably the sixth or seventh time in my life. I think it will now stick in my mind with your image here.
