you no longer   
 have access to that part of me  
 that waltzes with wanton raindrops  
 and harmonizes with ravenous bees.  
the me who fights fires with the frost from my mona lisa smiles   
and causes tiny deaths with just the lightest brushes of my quilled tongue.   
 the drain of you  
 is an abscess on my palate, 
whose leakage i can no longer accommodate.  
 now…. kindly  
 return  
 all of the refinements   
 i dulled then bent for your pleasure.

the music in this rain  
the tip of your tongue on my bottom lip 
the trill of my lashes against your cheek
 the weight of your perfume in the air  
the ghost of my thumb print on your thigh  
the light in your eyes as they take me in 
the trace of my smile as i let you 
that dance we do when no one’s looking  
all of it together is joy.

My current series fixation: THE PECULIAR KIND, a pretty fascinating unscripted webseries where queer women of color talk about themselves and their lives.

The uber-talented, MS. SASHA ALLEN, musical theater veteran and go-to touring background singer for Xtina and Babyface, to name a few. Whoaaa! Thank God for all of ‘Whitney’s children’ (those saaangin’ divas-in-training whom she inspired to really hone and develop their chops). Their existence make losing WHITNEY on FEB 11, 2012 hurt just a little bit less.  Sigh…
