to all the girls that were told, “you are pretty to be Darkskinned”…

she is glorious
impeccable
remarkably made

Let me rest in your shade…

The low light of your relative luminance
your outer space
the midnight prestidigitation
of your heaving breasts
the dark skinned cafe noir
slow grind
the black olive passion
of your Betty Shabazz

Can see the Swahili in her selfies
the instantaneous satisfaction
in her instagram
poses
Snapchatting the ivory white
twinkle in her eyes
juxtaposed with her Ivory Coastal Complexion
she is black,
deep meaningful black
black like Adam’s bride
black like the first baby born under the waiting sun
black like the first night

the dutty wine
of her limo tinted satin backdrop
she is merlot
the bend of her back side like the Western Shore of Kemit
she is pre-colonized black
revolutionary black
Black Panther tam black

she means everything to my desire
they told her that the painting of her complexion
was a curse
“Fuck them”
they have no idea how ancient and regal
she looks to me
how much she looks like God’s image to me
how perfect she is to me
she is…
Black
Onyx
Charcoal
Jet Rocketship Black
and I would have it no other way…
