Songs Are Like Tattoos

My response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry challenge #14: Take a favourite line

I have taken a line from ‘Blue’ by Joni Mitchell and incorporated it in a tanka:

 

Songs are like tattoos

Pricking at your tender skin

Begging to come in

And leave indelible stains:

Inky music on your soul
