a poem for me and by me, but inspired by my Brown Girl Extraordinaire

a poem for me and by me, but inspired by my Brown Girl Extraordinaire

Brown brown browwwn skin
I mean I’m like pecans and almonds
I’m all pecan and almondy
In the winter I’m all pecan and almondy til the spring comes & I get an inkling of my color back
I’m chasing the summer sun like I’ll take two shots on the rocks with that
I’ll up my dosage and blanket my body with a heat attack
Let the light shine down down downnn
The halo of the sun is my crown crown crownnn
I think I’ll make it toast to that
for All my brown girls
