By Andy Copeland



You told me

Nothing is permanent

Nothing is set in stone–

Except for the things that are set in stone–

But even then,

There are no guarantees

I got a tattoo

The needle marked my skin


It will not wash away

Forever marked

Yesterday I discovered it

When did I get it?

One day I found it

Grey measures of music

Strung together one-by-one

In a spiral


My music


Round my heart

Round my soul

It glows:

An uncontrollable,

Omnipresent light

Emitting from within me
