The Tattoo by Jay Passer

I got a bus tattooed to my arm.
it will take me to that hallowed place
off the track someday.

my nephew drew the picture.
I took it to the tattoo shop
and the guy said

nice.
then he dug in like they
do.

it cost $90
plus a $50 tip.
you best pay up when someone scars you for life.
