    reconnecting with blackness
    finding the blackness within' the blackness
    20 minutes away...an entire subculture
    existing in wards...i strolled through Newark today
    thinking seeing what i only thought that i could find in new york
    but got my hair trimmed
    my eyebrows done
    bought some more winter hats for my sons
    some chenile gloves
    rolled through the beauty supply store
    bought my jam, setting lotion, deep conditioner
    boar bristle hairbrushes for my sons
    a do-rag for my man
    stopped at the chinese food joint
    all for under $50.00
    out in the cold walking briskly through the streets
    reconnecting with blackness
    finding the blackness within' the blackness
    and having a whole lotta fun
