black woman (poem)


more than full lips and curvaceous hips

more than the overcoming of hardship

more than thick thighs and hair that defies

more than those big, beautiful, brown eyes

more than her past

more than a fad

more than a label

more than whatever you think she brings to the table

more than her progression

more than eye candy for a man’s erection

more than resilience to a maintained oppression

the inception, without question

the epitome of His perfection

more than her complexion

more than enough
