We at BD2W chose not comment on each of your posts this first week of March. We are proud that the Readers chose you as the First Winner of the Readers' Choice Award. Therefore, we felt it appropriate to allow your fans to interact with you without our input. Now, we can go on the record as stating that you were quite an intelligent choice. Your range of topics and styles entertained, enlightened and pushed our intellect beyond comfort zones.
Thank you again for participating. Your gracious end to your reign by collaborating with Mr. Sojourner G was truly a class act.

He sees in me a great and terrible tragedy.
My calves pull him closer to the beautiful mystery of it all.
He sees up close the battlefield, the limbs and pieces of false Gods and would-be demons.
The sight made him ravenous as he took heavy bites from the fruit beneath my breast."
flees down his arm and pools at his feet.
Mingling with hard earth to birth souls
We are a beautiful corruption."
I think of his grace above and beneath me.
Wishing always and especially for seamless curtains
of night and waking hours of demanding daydreams.

Love me in the ways of fantasy, the rhymes of dreams.
Let rainbows of ecstasy shower and anoint me.
Wasted life stains the soft cotton (un)-covers.
The scene of a massacre,
Left to lie in ruins, devoured and left hollow.
Don’t I deserve the chase?
Don’t I merit disdain, anger and at last indifference?
Instead of work late lies, I am knees and elbows.
No dinners, no movies (unless I star, of course)
“That’s not us.”
“You not that type ma.”
I let you know me better than me because 7 ½ is better than cool sheets.
“So whassup wit that?” --is better than invisibility.
Better a backache than heartache.
Better to practice technique for Mister right.
If I must wear the bruises I may as well feel the sting.
Dig deep and make some noise, I wanna feel it out and in.
You are right, that’s not us,
Well, it’s me but not with you.
fuck it, this’ll do.

Short and (Bitter) Sweet
Leave a heaving wreck.
180 proof drops of you
make me weak and lusting.

and I am drunk, dizzy, wrong, right and

Massacre of Saint Valentine
There is a debt for this offense
Assign those needs (every necessity)
Announce what lacks (so much)
Stone me bloody (negate me)
Sit staring from there
Waiting only to (in case)
Watch up close (too near)
To scrutinize your perfect flaws (every one)
Use, shame, take, hurt
Speak this language (learn anger)
Gorge on this dignity (until full)
I will never empty (never tire)
Hooks, hooks hold fast
Drop into this gentle noose (these arms)
To arms so vicious (cannibal limbs)
Lover’s tongue is no match (sweet venom)
Why not this poison then
Every drop of ink is (life blood)
From these veins and still (you mock)
Pallid, breathless, invisible (this me)
Deflect, run, preserve and stay safe
Flay, slice, gnash and tear (with love)
To pieces and burn to ash (to dust)
Every cry, I loose in your name (your champion)

My name is...
Love, says he when my given name doesn't spring to mind.
Ire, when I am impatiently waiting for the chime in his voice
Sweetness, when the kisses flood my skin and make me dizzy with passion
Adorable, when he sees me from the corner of his eye day dreaming about us.
My Name is
Yemoja, when I emerge from the waters of the Mother cloaked only in this native skin.
Oshun, when I am heavy with the fruit of our love.
Minona, when I am shielding our sisters from the storms of this world and others.
Oya, when I bring the about the tempests of this land with a mere utterance.
My Name is
Please, because I alone hold the key to his heaven.
Yes, because to deny me is to deny himself.
More, because I am too much and never ever enough.
Blessing, because without me he might never know that a supreme being existed.
