Soon there will
be more tattoos

on the planet
than people,

more ink on skin
than on paper.

We are already
reading each other

more than books
or newspapers.

I am thinking
of having

X
you are here

in blood red ink
inscribed

directly
over my heart.

I am thinking
if I indelibly

mark the spot,
& leave

a permanent
note

to myself,
I will not look

for you
somewhere else.
