Knife and bone and ink and brine
Start with nothing, smooth and plain
Call up memories and pain --
You have yours and I have mine.

Author's Notes

This poem came out of the July 2011 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user xjenavivex. It can be sponsored for $5 or 5 Torn World credits.

Warsailors protect Torn World shipping from the threat of sea monsters. They carve bone and ivory into beautiful scrimshaw, often illustrating memorable encounters.
