    my linen is winning
    but still it needs a woman’s compliment
    standing tall in stilettos
    classy & confident

    a seductress
    with sugar coated lips
    a baby doll in the face
    but grown woman in the hips

    caramel chardonnay
    describes her sultry skin tone
    her daddy was a deacon
    her mama was big boned
    so she can pray
    and play spades
    that means she’s cultured
    and yet home-grown

    i want a groove child
    that’s comfortable with savoir-faire
    she can finesse a 2 step
    between the bass and the snares

    is she egocentric?
    nawl…
    just the center of attention
    the missing ingredient in my gourmet pimpin
    …mrs. linen

    mrs. linen gives me never leave therapy
    that means she stays by my side
    i call her chevro-lady baby
    cause lil mama rides or die
    from the south-side…she’s country
    to the north-side…she’s cool
    she took me all over the east-side
    and introduced me her to crew

    from casual to comfortable
    look how we chill
    we take vacations just to take ‘em
    just look where we’ve been
    you only live once & might as well get it in
    because tomorrow ain’t promised
    and today is about to end

    so we’re driving love in the fast lane
    with the top down
    and the windows up
    mashing!
    and we ain’t worried about the laws
    tell ‘em come and get us
    pay no attention to the Jonses
    they’re trying to keep up with us

    because …

    we’re so high off each
    that we compete with the clouds
    looking for room in the heavens
    to put this love thing down

    we’re so high off of each other
    that we compete with the clouds
    trying to find room
    up here in heaven
    to put our love thing down
    …wow

    Wow is right. She is the girl next door, and a woman of the world, together you're just the right blend. Eloquently phrased poet.
