Beauty your nigger-knots are
we’ll have to comb them down
s t r a i g h t
                         but they’re tricky with
resilience, they’d rather hang loose
curling up from their roots.

What about braids with pretty beads?

Nappy twists won’t do
Let’s straighten it flat.

It will undo.

No, it will take the kink away from you.

I love how it curls–

But you have such a pretty-pale face Beauty,
It’s hard to see you through this pile of bush.

… But     I     see me.

Shh hush now.
R e l a x      as      I      permanently
take away the ack from your
and     leave     you


The white will
burn me away.

You have good hair     now     Beauty
The ugly is pressed down
If only we could do something about your tongue.
