New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

Razor Wire Tattoo

From a distance
she wore what looked
like a bangle
on her upper arm
which brought up thoughts
of the east
gypsies and swirling music
pulling her around
in a circle
but it wasn’t a bangle
that she wore.

Perhaps a wreath of flowers
encircled her there
the mark of a peaceful spirit
maybe one branch hidden in her hair
but as she walked toward me
with a purpose in her stride
I noticed no flower there
nor petals in her hair
and it wasn’t a wreath that she wore.

She wore
a razor wire tattoo
blue ink intricate the barbs of the fence top
pulled your eyes back up to the gates
and they were hard
the survivors unreadables
the junk yard dogs reaction to an excuse
and a Mayan fist
that held a still pumping heart
and I was moved all the more.
