The center of her body is marked with
a tattoo that surrounds her belly button.
It looks like two flowers bent in a circle
one is dead one is alive, and both are rendered
in color. She told me once that an old woman
did them while she laid on her kitchen table
during a trip she took to Mexico when she was
still a student. The people she met there enjoyed
stomping their feet rapidly at Soccer games, and
joking loudly with each other during dinner.
Overgrown yards were mowed by kids saving up
money to buy concert tickets and they nearly
pushed the machine right into a fence due to the
way her skin looked when she would lay under the sun.
Dreams about people like her are never done they just
repeat themselves like skipping records or commercials
for something everyone wants they just don’t know it yet.
