    aka "EFF The Perm"


    stand behind me, baby
    put your hands
    on my neck, you
    know the spot
    now ease em
    up into my kitchen
    where you know
    it’s good and hot

    crook your fingers
    around my thick
    soft strands
    tug em firmly
    with your hands


    massage my scalp
    caress my head
    let’s do this standing
    up….

    instead…

    rub my temples
    feel the sweat
    african pride oil
    be soaking wet

    dripping
    in trails
    all down my face
    ain’t a bit of dry skin
    ….any place

    make me nappy
    baby…
    let’s get tangled
    in my kinks
    you know how
    wild I be errytime
    my hairdo shrinks

    curl me tightly,
    sweetie
    from my crown
    down to my toes…

    when it’s kinky
    in my kitchen
    on the real it’s
    “anything goes” :wink:

    you have a way

    of using words so that it puts the reader in that place in that time..this is about as sexual as it gets without doin the deed..

    Wow...what a stunning metaphor for sex (I think?)...I mean this has so many multiple meanings for me....which all great poems do....so real, yet so funny and lively....
    sorta reminds me of the old time blues....a lot of sexy suggestions there.....Hmmm...I love the raw, sensual wildness there...(in the kitchen, huh)
    a phenomenal write, Poetess...

    Yes Abstract all of that is up in this heah piece. Alyce has a way of expressing the sensous without being graphic, nasty or profane. She made the way of a woman with her man, a very beautiful and sacred thing. This is a rare skill as it is not easy if metaphors are not your strength and I love every line of it when she writes like this. Being a natural sistah myself, I can truly relate to this all the way down to my toes. HUMPH!
