    Your penis is a beheaded rooster, that only crows
    when the sun goes down.

    "Hoodoo'd", Ernesto Mercer


    they are cobra-heads, charm'd by your words.
    sistagurls too jones'd to hear the warning
    of maraca beads; throwin' themselves against hollow wooden walls
    that confine them.

    the interlockin' horns on your tongue
    shakin' like rattle snake tails; when warnin' off disturbance.

    you became the spitting cobra; the ringhal, who's venom's
    dispersed into eardrums: the eye of the conscious sista
    blind'd by rhetoric and vibe, I

    useta think them gurls
    were too stupid to know what was good for them.

    but now I know,
    they're too jones'd to know your mojo.

    sistagurls makin' pearls from the salt in their tears,
    they're threadin' pearls across their nerves
    like abacus beads; calculatin' the time it'll take before these sistas
    reach their breakin' point.

    they are gypsies in a dark room; where
    libation funk fumes through your lips, like compression
    from a punctured aerosal can.

    they don't hear the warning in your tones/ sistagurls, jones'd
    beyond rationality.

    they don't know the jones is a griffin
    shot off the onyx sheet, where suns rise & set themselves.

    you don't know how long
    before the jones is gone, and ascension
    reverse itself.

    won't be long
    before she questions you like the riddlin' sphinx; waitin'
    for a wrong answer to confirm her suspicion
    before she goes in for the kill.

    'cause anger make a hoodoo'd sistagurl
    a blackwidow; a predator after her street charmer:
    the brutha, who's magic don't change the fact
    that he's still mortal.

    This is terrible tight...I can't deny it...so deep. I must say, out of all the pieces I read from you, this has got to be the most thought provoking of them all. I feel like I've just sat thru a poetic theater with N2urSoul as the producer

    Once again...you got into my soul.
