Permanent

By Andy Copeland

 

Permanent.

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

Permanent.

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

Permanent.

My music

Spirals

Round my heart

Round my soul

It glows:

An uncontrollable,

Omnipresent light

Emitting from within me

Permanent.
