    To my peeved one



    “Don’t be mad”

    --John Wideman

    hey—
    u mad?
    I’m sawee—
    I luh’u
    I know—
    i-i I know—
    i been on ghost for a second now—
    but...—
    sweetheart—

    i pump thoughts ‘a you thru—
    my unconscious soul
    sugah—u
    feel me—?
    I really truly am sorry
    I miss-ded-did-ded-ded-did you
    Inexplicably..
    U still mad...?
    Sweetheart...
    U forgive me?

    From my tallest hair on the top of my head—
    To the ends oh my skimpy piano-playin fingaz—
    To my shaped stummach
    To my legz—
    Everyday...back and forth—
    To my feet
    (couldn’t understand my journey if u lived it)

    (at any rate)
    The whole of my physical form—
    worships every pitch of your voice—
    sweetheart—is u listenin’?
    baby—u

    Entrance—

    Mesmerize—

    Cap-tiv-ate
    n-cite
    every inch of me—
    know that and...


    Just don’t be mad—

    Sweetheart—
    U HEAR ME?
