    Black is Like

    Black is Like
    The universe
    the only thing greater than yourself

    When I was a little
    nappygirl,
    I saw a painting of
    A Black Man
    Holding a Black Woman
    Nursing their Black Child
    And they were floating
    In a violet sky
    Content in their knowledge
    That they were the beginning
    Of the universe
    I remember feeling
    Hypnotized by
    It’s awesome beauty
    And power
    That’s what
    Black is like

    Black is like
    Flying thru space
    Mesmerizing and awesome
    Like Lady Day and Nina Simone
    Like fresh collard greens
    And a sweet hambone
    Like Bergamot the Queen
    Diggin the scene with
    A gangster lean

    Black is like
    All things underground
    Like the slaves railroad
    Like that "TRUE" hip hop sound
    Like brilliant planets
    Venus, Mars, and Pluto
    Spinning around
    Like James Brown's sounds

    Black is like
    Afros and cornrows
    Blackeyed peas and
    Neckbones
    Mau Mau beats
    And Zora’s prose

    Black is like
    Slow grinds in
    purple lit basements
    break dances on
    New York pavements
    I can’t even
    Explain it
    You have to feel and taste it
    That’s what
    Black is Like
