Katie Sedon's Arm is a Whitman Poem

for the record, the tattoo is the final tercet of "song of myself" by whitman:

failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
missing me one place search another,
i stop somewhere waiting for you.

Yes, strictly speaking, though Whitman himself called "The United States" the greatest poem....
