Little Brother’s New Tattoo

Lexi Drexelius

he wants to get a tribute tattoo

of Maya Angelou

which i think is lovely

and completely beautiful

i’m just trying to convince him to get it somewhere other than

his right ass cheek, and

not his left ass cheek either

because that ass cheek

already has a portrait

of gonzo flying away

holding a bunch of balloons
