Travelers Welcome

by Stephen A. Rozwenc

that black lipstick
pierced eyebrow stare
from the supermarket cashier
angrily flips a ruffled bunch of asparagus
like ice
across the check-out counter
so smug and swift the glance
no customer
will ever know
it conceals her four winged dragonfly tattoo
instead of pubic hair
and a defiant refusal
to be owned by any possession
except her ferocious lithographs
no museum will dare show
because too many
every member of congress
and the senate
and commit suicide
for dishonoring
their vows
