for reading, to be read

by amy sharp


I will explain myself to you over and over again
when I say this
I mean that    

I'm gonna get myself some tattoos
a little legend
that marches up the side of my body
raise my arms and you can pull your finger across 
read me
I'm for reading
to be read

you can always find love here
here is where the well is
don't go into the dangerous forest
a cross that means run here 
if you need help
a river
do not drown
a symbol for fire
laughter
mouth wide open
