    girl i've been diggin'
    your sun singed honey blak
    since you and i ate that apple
    in eden /well you ate it first
    and it didn't matter cause
    it was sweet and we were both
    naked when the Lord
    found us with juice running down
    the edges
    of our mouths

    i've been diggin you
    since songhai and mali ruled
    and the pyramids took shape
    from kemites sweat
    and God's blessing

    i've been diggin you since
    we were shackled back to back
    sickness to sickness in the
    hulls of hate ships/

    as each tear fell from my eye
    as each scream was trapped and
    refused to reach the sky
    i was diggin you
    in those times you were my only hope
    / to keep us in existence

    i've been diggin' you since buildings
    were burned and blak fist were raised
    and blak velvet paintings showed
    off under blak lights...

    i've been diggin' you
    for a long time...
    from dust to garden to bush to shanty to projects
    to shotgun house to a deluxe apartment
    in the sky...y...y to time and time

    i've been digging your
    vibe that played tag between your thighs
    upon your back / swimming in the pool trapped in
    your navel / calling me naked to the kitchen table /
    along your lips / playing tug of war
    with your hips/

    back...forth
    forth...kcab

    i've been diggin you for a long time

    blak woman

    and i ain't ever letting go...
