    he's sitting sideways on a soft stool
    singing Sade's sweetest taboo
    sassy silhouette standing in stilettos
    on a stack of Sister to Sister subscriptions
    sucking a Popsicle dipped in brillo-creme
    with a splash of Amaretto

    snitty attitude,
    sleep-deprived and full of Bonnie
    faking The Passion
    mangina-mosity flashing
    lightweight mail bashing
    unlicking postage paid
    lashing, all mascara'd up
    eyebrows ceremoniously plucked
    tucked and altered
    manhood faltering, faltered--pink
    mashing 7 bullets in a 6 shooter
    is to me what kennedy was to zapruder
    itch.. scratched and picked
    scabbed and scratched again
    every-every diva-divas number one friend.
    for real..

    don't know what you want
    but I'll tell you whats inside the cooler
    riding the rooter..
    as unjust as a justice just denied a tutor
    somebody help me with my my my computer
    I gotta slide my slither till I'm right behind Taloola..
    living in shadows like Nel did Sula
    in the bottom, sassy's sasaphrassy..
    peter piper picked a nancy
    boy, I better quit 'fore I get too fancy..

    .a-ruh!.. ..
    ;-)​

    James,

    I haven't a clue what this piece is trying to say however I love the way it says it. Very pleasing to the ear. Balanced and beautiful rhythm.
