Three Dots

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Tattooโ€ฆ.You?.”Do you have a tattoo? If so, whatโ€™s the story behind your ink? If you donโ€™t have a tattoo, what might you consider getting emblazoned on you skin?

Three dots,

front and center

left and right.

Guide marks

as alone I lie

on the alter of machinery,

a toxic stream ofย radiation

beaming through my flesh;

grinding and throbbing

a death knell

to cancer.

Three dots

representing life.
