    {JuJu: an African fetish, or amulet, believed to possess supernatural powers...worn by those who believe)
    ~~~~~~~

    I come for you every moonrise
    with passions simmering in my
    pot of clay ~

    you sleep the sleep of the great
    gods and I do not wake you

    I come for the fine black and silver
    hair of your mochan temples,
    I come for the essence of your breath
    from your strong, wide nostrils
    I come for a clip of your nail from
    your long finger...
    I come for the sweet sweat of
    smooth flesh beneath your loin cloth...

    I come for the moisture of stolen kisses
    &
    while you sleep

    I chant my love for the life in you,
    the king you be...

    I speak in tongues of Wolof griots
    and whisper cries into the darkness

    and fashion, from the soul of you,
    a juju of my own
