I have been thinking seriously about my next tattoo being tea related and this is what I drew up. I knew I wanted something that ended in -ty, but changed to tea. I came up with originalitea, creativitea, ect… My bf said Namastea and I loved it because I figured it is about peacefulness and tea is very calming and it just sort of made sense. So this is what my next tat will be, roughly.
I painted this today. It started out as a rose. But then it turned into a rose on fire, I guess.
"Something here is a rye" said the detective in the bread factory
I will look with unglazed eyes
onto this nebulous existence
and I won’t hesitate to cut it
with a knife, unsympathetic to those
who would hinder or impede me.
They are not my life, I am my life.
I cannot imagine not turning over
every last effulgent piece of
this Earth, and so I will
not leave one drink undrunk,
one feeling unfelt, one sigh
unsighed. I will take what this world has
by force; I am here but once, so do not
stop me, block me, weather me in,
it will fail. I am an intransigent
being, uncompromising in my need,
unforgiving in my ways, strident in
my demands. Like a preservative,
feral mother I won’t let the one
I love become victim to famishment,
and I am my child today.

Probably one of my favorites that I have taken!
