Voodoo Bones, Tulips

Pimp My Lent/Day41

The Prompt:

From Kateri Cale, artwork by her father David Wm. Cale:  “Voodoo Bones, Tulips”…

The Product:

I see tulips and

I draw thistles

Drawn to prickly beauty


want them

even knowing

they will hurt make you bleed


it’ll hurt

and still

I make the grab

tighten my fists around them

til they pierce bone


oh that voodoo that you do

so well

The beauty of you

You prick

I bleed

The beauty of that
