    A week ago on this day
    I lost my virginity on the mic
    I wasn’t drugged by alcohol
    Ecstasy
    Or the doorman’s GHB
    But hypnotized
    And eroticized by
    A man’s words
    And his sister’s verse

    See I was never the type to yield to temptation
    Or tempt nations to
    Expose themselves
    Instead
    I’d just go with the flow
    And stop before
    Full penetration
    Or degradation
    Or simply put, a bad case of verbal blue balls

    But last week you turned me out
    You took me in
    You had me going down on the mic

    You see
    You had me feeling like an
    Innocent schoolboy
    Not knowing much about life
    Other than a sibling’s pure touch
    Under He-Man sheets
    Cute games of spin the bottle
    Or hand claps of Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
    All dressed in Black Black Black
    With silver buttons buttons buttons
    All down her back back back

    You see, if it wasn’t for ghetto games, and ghetto names, and ghetto places and my lost search for ghetto fame
    I wouldn’t be here today and I wouldn’t have lost my virginity on the mic

    But in the moment, I was down stairs
    I was like masculine boys in basements
    Privately watching daddy porn
    Gazing to see if best friend’s horn needed to be blown
    Because like Louis Armstrong and Little Blue Boy
    I want to play him a song
    And because we are both thirsty
    And nervous
    And adventurous
    I need to be the first to make a move
    As it happened last week

    So on that day
    From lip poured lyrical libations
    Paying respect to Sambo
    And Baraka
    And Philadelphia
    Fire and Water
    Tasgali
    And Detroit
    And all of the sites of my verbal conception

    And as words became erected
    And collected in a language and talent misdirected
    I was given license to
    Pick at phrases and proper diction
    So that I at least
    Look experienced

    And with a mumble
    About a final embrace of his touch of love
    It didn’t take long to realize I’d come

    You see, I enjoyed the feeling
    The rush of being like me
    But oh so much not like me

    And you noticed this and sought to take advantage of me
    And you asked me to come again
    And like a voodoo priest
    I inducted you with vi ah e vi ah e I owe

    And all because you wanted me
    And you looked into my heart
    And at last he smiled
    And you encouraged me with a head nod
    And a bite to the bottom lip

    I knew that I would never be again
    You see, last week I lost my virginity on the mic
    And even after the day after, I didn’t regret it
