    When a sistah
    hasn't been kissed
    for a long time
    she gnaws the
    bone of a wish

    When a sistah
    hasn't been kissed
    for a long time
    she plays *ocarina
    of her mouth--
    an air of seed

    When a sistah
    hasn't been held
    for a long time
    she ladles the
    pillow into the
    tureen of her arms

    When a sistah
    hasn't been thought
    of for a long time
    she worries with her
    tongue the edges of
    cabochon, semi-sweet
    and dark

    When a sistah
    hasn't made love
    for a long time
    she takes a guess
    at the sex of oranges
    and the versatility of
    toast

    When a sistah
    hasn't been in a
    relationship for
    a long time she
    buys boxes of
    cereal for the
    plastic tiny prize

    When a sistah
    hasn't been kissed
    for a long time
    she stands by
    your man




    *ocarina = a small wind instrument; oval shaped

    Now Gurrrrrrlllllll!

    This poem is extremely tight, but you put the HOOK on this with a tight knot:

    When a sistah
    hasn't been kissed
    for a long time
    she stands by
    your man.


    Now ain dat da truff! :D
