Sugar and Potatoes

Sugar and Potatoes
As I ponder the question of you and I
I wonder
I wonder who are you
As you whisper sweet, well, sweet bull that you feel I should and probably will fall for
Who is this creation of visual splendor that is doin’ all he can to make some sorta of love to my mind with sugary words

As my insulin rises, what should I say in response?
My mouth dry but my thighs drip with ever loving reply
Speak it, say it but do I need to fall for it?
Who are you really, whispering words that seem to come from a sexy Prince tune, one that my momma said I couldn’t listen to back in the day?
Damn, my ears desire the sweet nothings your mouth speaks into them

I’m confused about your person
What do you represent?
Sugary sweet soft words that causes me to lose the control, the control I brag about having when I’m shooting the shit with the girls telling them that my pimp game is on point
Muthafucka, what do you want or need from me
My body, my lips well defined with cherry lip liner and cherry flavored lip-gloss
Your words offer nothing but promises of physical pleasure that I know I need…what? some honey…where? Hell yes do that there
I’m waiting for the meat and potatoes of your sugary soliloquy
Is there more beyond you penetratin’ and lickin’
I’m waiting for you to fuck me with your intelligence
How they couldn’t deal with Angela Davis’ fierce womanhood or the latest deepness of Cornell West
Don’t get me wrong, damn, I’m amazed how your words drip with sexual prowess and can touch that thing in me that burns, yearns and desires something long, strong and hard to penetrate with force yet with tenderness
You have the skills to make me want to live close by
To make that 2:00am run
Sugary Sweet, delicious words
Who are you, just a temporary vision?
Someone to remember
Who hit it back in the day?
Tempt me your community service
Woo me with your self-empowerment
Sex me with three letters, PhD
Sugary sweet, sexy and fine as you are
I want to know youBut damn, can you show me who you really are?

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross

The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.

The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …

Aquarius Rising - Authentically Me

I'm not one to really get into Zodiac signs and yet I'm fascinated the astrological relationship to our spirits. I know we all still blame the moon for man's "lunacy".

When I read about the sign of Aquarius, I'm taken by how much it does describe me. I'm not guided by astrology but I do recognize its connection to the Universe.

Some don't realize how man used astrology throughout the bible as a guide for God's people. But this isn't about astrology and the Christian faith but me being the fabulous Aquarius female that I am.

This is me, basically...READ ON


(The Sun is in Aquarius from approximately January 20 to February 18, depending on the year). One of the standout characteristics of those born under the Sun Sign of Aquarius is their unwillingness to follow the beaten track. With advancement and …
