The Spider Tattoo

The dark skinned girl

with ringlets of black curls

falling carelessly down her back

cast me a white toothed smile

of soft invitation of love

upon catching my soft gaze.

 

Seductively she threw her

ringlets over her left breast

exposing the spider tattoo

adorning her slender neck.

 

I smiled back a brown-eyed tear

she saw was soft regret for

a time that would never be.

 

I finished my cold coffee

gathering my pack to my back

to head to the red desert of 

sacred solitary mystery.
