this is for the sistas
who’ve stopp’d combin consciousness
long enough for their minds to lock

i’m a weaver of language, who knits you a tam
to catch your thoughts

---the silken extensions
hangin from your head
like palm leaves

this also, is for the sistas
who vary in hue & speckle the city
like black pepper, adobo, & accent

who holds the sun like tangerine wedges
in their mouths---rays spillin down the side
of their incandescent smiles

the sistas, who’s thighs fan out
under dress slacks or stretch jeans

who’s metronomic backsides
stir the air like cyclones

i’m comatose to the low drone of traffic,
the cacophonous motion of DC in the afternoon
---the steam’d meats & spices, waftin from vendor carts

scatter’d about the District

i’ve planted you poems,
grew you a tree of metaphors & similes;
analogies are fruits i feed you

like mangoes & sucrier figs

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
