Tattoo

What once was meant to be a statement—
a dripping dagger held in the fist
of a shuddering heart—is now just a bruise
on a bony old shoulder, the spot
where vanity once punched him hard
and the ache lingered on. He looks like
someone you had to reckon with,
strong as a stallion, fast and ornery,
but on this chilly morning, as he walks
between the tables at a yard sale
with the sleeves of his tight black T-shirt
rolled up to show us who he was,
he is only another old man, picking up
broken tools and putting them back,
his heart gone soft and blue with stories.

A tattoo rather than my tattoo (of which I have none)

Wife and I were driving through Idaho mountains on a little-used back road when we came upon this scene. A photographer and his model were in a little clearing doing a shoot. We pulled over and watched and during a break I asked if I could take a few snaps...they both agreed. As you can see, I concentrated on her eagle!!
