HAIR COILS UP BUT IT DON’T SPRING BACK

LIKE A MATTRESS MADE LOVE ON

IT DON’T SPRING BACK

 

SKIN IS BLACK LIKE

FINGERS DRAPED ON THE BASE OF A LOVERS NECK

BLACK LIKE, DON’T GET LOST IN THIS NECK

OF THE WOODS

 

THIS MUST BE SPOKEN ALOUD

THE PAIN UNTANGLED

BECAUSE COMPLEXION IS HARD TO EXPLAIN

 

YOU CANT QUITE PICTURE THESE HIPS

ARE FULL LIKE POLITICIANS

ARE FULL OF SHIT

FULL LIKE HOOD BABIES

ARE FULL OF DREAMS

FULL LIKE DISPLACEMENT GENTRIFICATION

 

TO SWIM IN A POOL SO DEEP

THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER YOU’LL NEVER REACH

IT’S FUCKED UP, SO GET UP. GET OUT

DON’T WANT YOU IN THE POOL ANYWAYS

YOU ARE FOREVER DISPLACED

 

THIS AIN’T ABOUT RACE

IF IT WAS WE’D NEVER

IN A GAME RIGGED

 

TOO MANY TIMES  BEEN MADE TO CHOOSE

EITHER TO LIVE UP

OR STOOP DOWN

RED SAID IT BEST-ON US PLYMOUTH ROCK LANDED

 

AND SO THIS NEEDED TO BE WRITTEN

THE STORY NEED NOT BE SCRIPTED

WE ARE BLACK

OUR HAIR COILS UP IT

DON’T SPRING BACK LIKE

THE MOVEMENT THAT WAS LOST
