Have you seen Maiden, Mother, Crone?

Poetry and Tattoos
They are so similar
Ways we humans capture a memory
A person
An emotion
A moment
A love
We write them down
We brand them on our bodies
Things of our mind, heart, and soul
We sometimes regret their permanence after we imprint them with ink
Whether words on paper or pictures on flesh
But the memory, love, person, emotion, is so strong
We couldn’t let it go
So we put it out there for the world to see
