portrait in abstract

her hair ain’t black
it’s mostly red
fierce
fiery
like the colours in her head

her skin ain’t black
it’s coffee ‘n cream – a golden brown
earth that breeds
a body that bleeds
she cannot be kept down

you can feel
that she’s real
sex appeal
nerves of steel

she paints her toes ‘n fingernails
Gaia green
since birth
she’s had worth
miracles unseen

like her legs
she thinks hard ‘n long
migraine
pain
too much in the world has gone wrong

you can feel
that she’s real
sex appeal
nerves of steel

a black queen
with brown skin
smarts
‘n secrets
buried within
