This post isn’t about poetry and yet it is.
As Alexis Madrigal tells it in The Atlantic, two thousand volunteers were tattooed in 2003, each with a single word of writer Shelley Jackson’s story “Skin.” Two participants wed. One person died.

That just beats the heck out of poetry refrigerator magnets.
