Black Woman

An exquisite detail of Ebony Brown, like gold like dust, this human chassis The beauty of melanin Sits proudly on her iris. She spreads, ogling at the sun Delightfully Like it's fiery, spells fun She stares with lips lurching seductively. Her existence is nobody's stranger Like the biblical raven in sky She has dwelled much longer Than men learnt to see with both eye. In between Her beautiful world In between, I wish to be seen Sharing in her royal blood.
