The Inkslinger

He loves the ladies
He has designs on each one he meets
They color his world much as he colors their bodies

Each new conquest a fresh landscape
Space to display those dreams,
Those fantasies and nightmares
That spew from his id

They emerge from his electric chair
Released from his web to the world
To serve as living canvas, displaying his art.


From the book, “A Mixed Bag” by Rick Fontes.
Available at Amazon and other fine booksellers.

A paean to my youngest son, Joseph Fontes, currently needling people at
The Electric Chair, a tattoo parlor in Houston Texas.

  1. This is such a twist. I saw several scenarios here. A casanova, an artist, a tattooist, a vampire… You are a tricky one. Great one.
