I have a body, who is to small, a synonym
I own a jean trousers that’s almost skinnier than me
A turtle neck sleeve that hugs me tightly
Like a long lost lover had just been found.

I write poems that are almost as pretty as my dreams
Build websites that look like they’ve been to the gym
And before I lose focus on what’s really at hand here
I use a pink phone!

See and be blessed by the curvature of my lips baby girl!
I carry on my tongue a special kind of bliss
Never to curse – but if you for once think I’m gay
Well, you know what the Benin folks say about Ogun and killing.

      This reply is such a mildly transcending “mad oh” ma’am.

    And the last line though… It was funny.
