    pocket size (before)


    i enjoy the scent of raw sunsets that litter your mouth…
    the scent of images you birth in my thighs; they affect
    my walk and I prance lightly…
    yesterday…
    i bathed myself in sunshine and whispering winds of
    how it felt lusting after ur shadow…dead-set on
    having you be my life-force.


    ***************




    'untitled II' (after)


    i have

    planted trees within

    my soul…

    the accompaniment

    of ancient drums

    bloom in my aural.

    there are faint

    sounds of

    bitterness walking

    along ashy sea-

    coasts where

    once friendly waters

    now lung at me

    in hatred.

    what was the reason for

    me yielding my

    i.d. for 30 pieces of silver…

    smirkin Judas’s

    grope me in

    the dark…hands

    like sultry disgust, rip

    the last bit

    of dignity from

    my being.

    i arise at half past grief

    and groan when

    my womb aborts many childlike

    midnights that

    mock me in their

    placental juices…when

    my eyes embrace images

    of freedomic frees that

    range from conservative to

    extreme.

    the

    trees planted in

    my soul have deferred

    from positions of up for

    positions of scraping

    the grounds…like

    old 1920 negro mammies bowed to

    the floor beneath the weight

    of prejudice.

    i will jovially mock me…

    i will jovially mock…

    i will repeat the

    cycle…i

    wonder when the

    cycle will

    release

    me?

    What I got from this was... Temptation was like ambrosia, but after being used for evil, you feel used up, like yesterday's rubbage. You've been blessed with a creative pen.

    My appetite always gets satisfied from reading your work. It's always a creative feast and I love reading all the types of ways you express simple things in such big and beautiful ways.

    Desires aren't always what it seems.

    In the imagination we can lose ourselves
    in the script that we authored. But in the realm
    of anything goes, anyone can change the script.
    Be ever conscious of the possible before's and after's.

    Deep mysterious piece! Love it!
