For black women who learn to give it away

Creating space

Planning away

Designing the details

Hoping for agreement

Folding in energy

Lobbing for endorsements

Wanting what won’t be said

Feeding too much

Attempting to fill a broken heart

Convincing I too have a purpose

Giving pleasure and instruction

Silencing and with holding

 

Say little black woman,

When did you learn to chew your tongue. . .

And suck your own blood to entertain vampires?
