tattoos on the mind by A.J. Wright
published in Volume 2, Issue 2 on April 3rd, 1995

merely a fragment of moon floats
over the early evening sky

a crescent as white as bone
rising in my sleep

and nearly forgotten tomorrow;
as authentic and forsaken

as test patterns once decorating
dark rooms across america

as safe as fingerprints
discarded on the sand.

later in the night
as an image joins the skin

we can dream
the souvenirs together.
