She Don’t Do Kinky Anymore

She don’t do Kinky Anymore.
Because it’s long and silky,
But doesn’t touch the floor
For combing “it” is more like a chore.
She don’t do Kinky Anymore.
Because ____________ don’t
Appreciate her God given beauty.
The kinks, the locks, and the Springy like texture…
It’s just not what they’re looking for.

She don’t do Kinky Anymore.
Doc says treatment and
Maybe three – four years.
Damn pills, thinner hair.
In her solemn eyes – less to love.
More sorrow to cry out for.
She don’t do Kinky Anymore
How dare she look like Harriet Tubman,
Do it up big like Angela Davis,
Or crop it low like Esther Rolle.
She don’t do Kinky Anymore.

Sometimes she refuses to do Kinky Anymore.
No, never again.

Sometimes she can’t do Kinky Anymore.
There is no hair.

Sometimes she doesn’t see her inner Queen.
I love me.

Whatever the reason…
There’s only one judge.
She don’t do Kinky Anymore.

Dedicated to all my sisters who have the courage to do you
(kinky or straight) like nobody’s watching.
