    "kiki, you ever notice how lonely
    and in need of love an empty bus
    looks at night?"

    (For RS)

    i would like to meet your magic
    somewhere where mauve
    blooms into damask roses
    somewhere where words giggle
    like a child flying with her eyes closed
    moonlight dangling from her braces
    a bracelet of snow around her ankle

    or maybe we can meet in adam's garden
    under the persimmons and listen to
    afro'd tree apostles singing
    tiny sprigs of slow jazz
    their baritone voices soft
    as two silk doves unraveling

    or maybe we can meet
    in a new city you've airbrushed
    with beautiful sistahs and brown babies
    where the love and respect from
    their precious black men gaze
    directly at them from all directions
    their community sweet as
    mangoes, yams and coconuts

    or maybe we can simply meet
    at a greyhound station in LA
    and watch the empty buses
