Ink to flesh

Ink to paper is thoughtful
Ink to flesh, hard-core.
If Shakespeare were a tattooist
We’d appreciate body art more.

—Terri Guillemets

Agony of anxious

Fear —
      not running-from-bear
      but running-from-life
Courage —
      not getting-up-the-nerve
      but getting-up-every-day

—Terri Guillemets
