Does the Sterling Silver Cross Burn?
A big, butterfly tattoo on her left shoulder-blade,
a cute curly cue on her right buttocks,
a bare bones something or other engraved on her left triceps,
and surrounded by a spider web tattoo, a
sterling silver cross piercing her belly button,
she coos sweetly and lovingly lowers her little boy
into the hot tub with her while the cross dangles.
They sit and she asks questions in two-year old talk.
Does the cross burn her tummy?
The little boy plays on deck while mommy
bathes in the sun.
Does the cross burn a mark on her tummy?
Does the mark then heal, peel and fade?
