Knickers With Holes in Them

Crazy-Eyes

Perhaps orange is the new black.

Dirty laundry.

Knickers with holes in them.

Uncle Susan in the attic.

Aunt Jimmie (with the mustache) in the basement.

Redbone stepson choking cats out back.

Lost girl sobbing in the back room, no trustworthy shoulder to lean on.

In a so-called politically correct world, knickers with holes in them are not on the cover of magazines because they are fashionable and trendy.

Don’t be…

A Third Eye And Still Blind

Prince on Saturday Night Live November 1, 2014

There are only TWO types of afros.

An alternate title for this post could very well have been “How to Get Away With Murdering . . . an Afro.”

As one who has stood at the elbow of Blue Magicians and Masters of taming the Almighty Afro, this proclamation must finally be made.  There are only TWO types of Afros that are hallowed.  A magician or a master will tolerate a “Jimi Hendrix” bed-hair-messy afro or a neat biscuit, shaped to perfection, that’s fit for a Prince.  Either the afro falls at the one end of the afro continuum or the other.

There is no in between.

The Bluest Eye

Tameka-Tiny-Harris

“I permanently changed my eye color with BrightOcular and lovin it,” Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris wrote on Instagram.

It’s official.  Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, T.I.’s boo, has the bluest eye.  Her eye color, thanks to a surgical procedure by BrightOcular, has gone from drab and brown to a cool ice gray.  To borrow a verse from Drake Drizzy, Oh Lord, BP from a hunderd to two hunderd real quick.

Grape Jelly Eaters

woman-as-life-children-as-joy

Dale C. Slavin’s “Joie de Vie,” a limestone sculpture on a granite base, looks like a single woman chilling with her children in Beachwood near The Land in Ohio.

My new doctor is Indian.  During a recent first visit, he asked if I had children.  When I told this graham-cracker colored man no, the look on his face revealed he rarely met Black women over twenty who were virgins to giving birth.  Then he went and asked me that other question, the question that comes first—I presume—if you are any other attractive single woman.  Why aren’t you married?

Priceless: My First Ring

my-first-ring-a-teeny-handful-of-love

Marcus S. combed soft and wavy cat fur for hair and saw the world through eyes the color of ice tea in sunlight.

Marcus S. would be mine.

We were nine.
