“All This Time”

July 2, 2011

For 8 years Cliff and Clair Huxtable endured their off-camera drama,

And they’re still in syndication,

Arguing during the commercial breaks…

My lover is deeper than the blackest blue
she’s a darker shade
a much lighter hue
she’s a hint of brown
a rich maroon
she’s a mahogany colored
tawny tune

a chamoise smile
with auburn eyes
and bole breasts
with caramel thighs
two chestnut lips
and ecru hips
she’s a sepia skinned pecan surprise

my rufous heart
my umber queen
her fallow face so bright
i wish her tender citrine kiss
and dream her chocolate night

February 7, 2011

I lay in state,

Shoulders pinned to the mattress beneath the heaviness of my grief,

Her sunshine 93,000,000 miles away,

Still scorching my thoughts,

Remembering her dance made me smile,

Remembering her laughter made me cry,

I wept,

Sobs wracking my body,

Gravity drawing water from the wells in my eyes,

Tears spilling down my temples,

Slowly transforming ears into saltwater reservoirs,

Remembering someone saying, “It’s funny how time flies!”,

But thinking it’s sad how much we take time for granted,

And you begin to believe that a few seconds,

minutes,

hours,

days,

weeks,

months,

years,

by themselves could keep the saltwater from wearing away the sunshine

I peeled back my Blackness today, & saw for the first time my humanity, sinewy and raw, smoldering beneath the white hot sun. – Rameen Gasery
