remind me.

when i’ve forgotten

you.

silent awareness

sexual lullabies

sensual liberation

jazz in your hair

blues in your feet

gospel in your eyes

hip hop in your fingers

blooming sunflowers in your arms

salt water in your hands

cinnamon sticks on your breath

dark honey on your tongue

diaspora dreams in your kiss

earth in your smile

afrika in your back

*

remind me

when i’ve forgotten

you.

that you are also carrying the world
