Written for The Mag #147, image provided by Tess Kincaid.

 Hidden Pearls


this world, my oyster…
when seeking path of wisdom
let my maps guide you













Inked


There was one and only one
that got in, under my skin.
Can still trace the marks he left
indelibly printed on my soul.

    1. Never heard of a Tanaga, had to look it up. Pretty close I guess, but for the last line. Thanks for enlightening me!
