Tribal Mark

by Daniel Godwin

Mother has an unfinished tally
On both sides of her cheek
So it seems.
Deep and elaborate.

A zodiac sign I can't relate.
Cute; admirable.
An incision, I wouldn't agree to.
Single stroke resting
on my chubby cheeks.

Willingly or not?
My stipulation didn't matter.
Beautiful tally, an enhanced mechanism.

Tally my offspring.
A request done
without asking.
