#Poetry – She Talk Too Much


The silver pin in her ‘fro
Represents her simplicity.
And she likes to keep her
Vision painted that way.
Kidnap her attention,
Spoil her with thinking
On a higher level,
Introduce her to new ideologies,
And see if she’ll submit to
Philosophies about how her people
Love, struggle, and overcome
The things that they do,
Then you have a more complex
Situation on your hands.
Because brotha man, or any man,
The knowledge on your tongue
Will be like the hug from behind
And the tender kisses on her nape
That will both calm her
And weaken her.
She’s going to be so
Deeply connected to you…
Conversational intercourse
Is what she loves to do.

#Poetry – Untitled Today, Clarity Tomorrow


Its so quiet,
I can hear cotton drop.
But, the sonic boom
On this cliche is just
Too much for me to bear.
My thoughts go pop.
And sometimes south.

All the physical space
In the world,
Can’t manufacture the
Right keys to unlock
The mental space in my world.
But this gift,
I waiver on what I’m suppose
To do with it.
My words are ballerinas
But plie` for who?
My gift rests on a stage,
But doesn’t know what to do.
