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
