    quarter past midnight,
    a cover of rich, smooth ebony veneer,
    inebriates senses with sweet liquors
    brings shaded elation here.

    clad in magnificent darkness,
    effortlessly flowing, a dark stream
    of intoxicating reality; to drink deeply
    from dark vessels lips licorice dream.

    unglued in her night coat,
    sprawled against sweet ebony glue,
    savoring the grain of dark wood
    fearing the pulsed moment it is through.

    Love Them All . . .

    . . . but I have a special place for my dark skin sisters--I call my lady Ebony with good reason and she is strong as the wood and polished just as brightly mentally and physically--and I do hold her close--that close--Amun-Ra

    Giving Credit

    Something I've always seen, but not many talk about it--actually, I guess we shouldn't need to, but I see the looks on the faces of those who are darker than night and it pains me because we are the perpetrators--one thing I'll say to make my point--look at any video, movie or African-American magazine and tell which women you see there? I'm not faulting those women, but I am faulting those who set the standards for African-American beauty in this country--US! Yes, all we see is the European idea of beauty, but we are long past the stage that we need to bu in to it--That's enough--I feel a rant coming on, so I am dropping it there--Amun-Ra

    wow.
    you can just taste this work. smooth, very smooth.
    the visuals were just stunning.

    "clad in magnificent darkness,
    effortlessly flowing, a dark stream
    of intoxicating reality; to drink deeply
    from dark vessels lips licorice dream."


    that is just sublime, just liquid.
    im impressed.
    this is a major write. publish-worthy.
