Stingray: Session I

This is a poem that I wrote in the tattoo parlor as I waited anxiously right before getting my first tattoo yesterday. It is about half done, in three weeks I will get the other elements and color added, and I will try to write a second poem before that. The poem is about how getting a tattoo along with losing weight is a fresh start and a new me, and references an older poem I wrote "Centerpiece", contradicting how I used to feel since now I have confidence and am ready to be put on display, so to speak.
