mother teresa tattoos…

So, I think I’ve mentioned that I get a lot of “searches” for Mother Teresa Tattoos. I don’t know why, well, I guess I know why they come to me NOW. It’s because I keep talking about it. I’ve created a sort of search engine time loop. It’s cool. 🙂

I DON’T know why they came to me at the start though. I talk about tattoos, certainly and I must have mentioned Mother Teresa at some point I suppose. I like Mother Teresa a whole lot to be honest. I will say I had a friend one time say, “God, I’m so sick of that f*@#ing Mother Teresa…if one more person mentions her to me I’ll f*@#ing scream.” To which I may have made mention of Mother Teresa just to see what would happen. I mean, come on…why pick on Mother Teresa?

I digress.

In light of my Mother Teresa Tattoos search folk I’ve written a poem thus insuring that you’ll continue to find me whenever you do that search, friends. I’d still really like to know what you were ACTUALLY hoping for in the search…do tell…and to see your ink if it’s post-able.

For now, here’s this:

Mother Teresa tattoos…

The image
is simple-
sacrificial
line drawings
filled with
sweet color
subtle shading
sinking into the skin
resting there
while blood rises
in response

if there are words
they are –
love,
love only
nothing else
nothing less
this, her only ink
her signature
the one work she offers
as she sits down
with needle in hand
when Mother Teresa tattoos…
