Totem and Tattoo


 Electricity shooting through nimble fingers becoming self aware in  movement
Destined little digits spider-crawling to embrace their first pen
How effortlessly it would pour
Dawning of the prodigy to emerge in drawn luminosity
Unloved blank pages seduce eyes with sultry fragrance
Yearning for loving tip
To be sanctified by the cadence of illustration
Fine line work setting foundation to the kingdom of creation
Ambrosial touches of shading
Seeing with gifted vision dynamics intense like freight train collisions 
(The pen morphs into a gun)
Stainless and precise
Setting forth to link the gospel of ink through the bite of piercing needle
Sweetest hum of mechanical bee
Teasingly dipping blood as phallus into flower
Breathing life into conception on the palace of living beings
Flux of flourishing virtuosity earning such passionate worship
Devotees thirst for every drop of incandescent ritual
Controlled abrasion making love to nude pores

Legions sacrifice canvas of skin to the Pantheon for the ceremony to usher in the New Gods of Art
