like ripe, green-peppered memories
simmering with gentle onion-type stories
Tears of glee and distress fall upon . . .
Psalms and anointing of heads
Choir gowns and ill beds
like violet laced cloths upon attire, deemed too short
like the whimpered prayer earlier than the abort
With mommas and daddies who dance jointly still
With wills already performed and can provide fulfilled
loving the black boys strolling back from stores
loving the brown ladies simply studying to talk English
forty plus, "post-crush"
loving rush hours that come correct on time
from the sleek publication covers
flyy brothers and society's "others"
learning the way to read
to crease yellowed gems
packed with phrases from busy craniums
like site visitors on a Friday
like liquor on a Sunday
Writing poetry is icing...
Life is cake...
Don't leap whereas it is cookin'
...then you could taste
