    [Dedicated to Alice Walker & my gurl Alyce]

    And now I know
    That my p*ssy is purple
    Cos' Alice Walker
    Said it was so

    Us
    Women
    Sat down
    On the edge
    Of the bed
    One day

    Celie
    Shug Avery
    Alyce
    And me

    Us
    Spoke

    While
    Alice Walker
    Took the notes

    Celie
    Held my hand
    Timidly

    And

    Shug Avery
    Threw her head back
    And laughed sexy
    Alongside Alyce

    Us
    Women

    Talked about
    The true color of p*ssy
    That day

    Well...
    They talked

    Celie and me
    We mostly
    Just listened

    Although
    I did tell them
    That I shaved
    My p*ssy once

    Not for the first time
    But that last time

    With meaning

    Cos'
    I wanted to
    Take a good look
    At my P*ssy's face

    And

    Run my fingers
    Across the smooth
    Memories
    Of her early beginnings

    That's when
    They handed the mirror
    To Celie and me

    And

    Told
    Us
    Two

    To look inside
    The Purple P*ssy Place

    And

    Jus then
    The cotton bed sheets
    Began to change

    And

    Inside the mirror
    Celie and me
    Became

    Soft
    Silk
    Satin
    And lace

    Us saw...

    The miracle of p*ssy's reflection
    In there

    Us saw....

    P*ssy wearing a
    Royal Purple Crown....

    Purple.....Generations
    Purple.....Revelations
    Purple.....Black
    Purple.....Strong
    Purple.....Negro Spiritual Songs

    Us saw...

    Purple.....Revolutions
    Purple.....Human Rights and Constitutions
    Purple.....Emancipations
    Purple.....Proclamations and Declarations

    Of Independence for p*ssies everywhere
    To vote and to be free

    Us saw...

    Purple.....Black mamas
    Purple.....Black babies and the white babies

    Black mamas helped to take care of

    Purple.....Broken Black Families

    Struggling to keep one good color
    When the confusion of rainbow is everywhere

    Us saw
    Inside of me

    Purple.....Beginnings
    Purple.....Endings

    And
    In the middle

    Purple.....Eggs waiting

    To assume their rightful place

    To bring birth to more

    Purple....Purple....Purple....

    Purple....Black.....P*ssies....

    All over again

    And I know
    That my p*ssy is purple
    Cos' the mirror
    Says that it is so

    And

    Us
    Women
    Sat down
    On the edge
    Of the bed
    One day

    While

    Alice Walker

    Took the notes

    awesome

    I am new here, but I have sampled the sweet and the tart of the vagina chronicles, my sista! And it all tastes good! This is masterpiece work, and your symbolism is impeccable! What a tribute to the great Alice Walker, her unforgettable characters, and the very beautiful soul of the one called "Alyce".

    I'm reading this again, it is my scripture for today!

    Thank you, sista!


    ciao

    entering from the garden holding a lilac

    out of the depths of your mind comes a colorful array of sounds and sights embelished with hopes and dreams wrapped in reflection and coneption of reality based history...

    hunter i am quieted by the depth of your pen for it constantly strives to take a subject and reaarange the normal assumptions into a defintion that Webster would never have considerd...

    well written is this scribe which leaves me inspired to work on a piece from "Mister's" point of view...(this will be difficult but i shall see)

    always enjoying your scribes and i am honored by your talent...

    i's got a crush on your pen :D

    returning to the garden reading the Color purple
