Inspired by the Face-Tattooed Maori

If God exists he must be tatted.
After all,
what is a face tattoo
but a commitment to your faith?

The idea of an officials’ wet stamp
smushing paper
is an old one.

It relates to irrevocability.
It relates to visibility.
In a way,
even personal pride.

That was how they’d formalize
in olden times 👴
is what I mean to say —
even currency.
