Give thanks my children and others recognize the effort eye put forth in making sure my children are whole in spite of their Father's absence. Honestly, eye do not put myself on a pedestal simply because he has chosen a hands off approach to parenting, but it is what it is. By default eye hold it down, over-compensate, and over-function, it's certainly not my chosen path. Healthiness IS my chosen path, so it must happen at all costs.

Eye do what eye do because my commitment has ALWAYS been to "do my best, be my best, give my best, and live my best" to and for my seeds. "One monkey don't stop no show", so his choices do not excuse me from my purpose - and eye know this. With that said, eye want to make it clear that my role is not that of Mom and Dad, as many suggest, rather just being the dopest kind of Umi that ever existed. Don't know how to be a Father, and don't wanna be (stand at a urinal, no thank a purposed, called, dedicated, original, unique, sharp-skilled and hard loving Mami...aww, sooky sooky, I AM!!!

Salute - Nikki Giovanni

Stuck on Passion Felt
(Taken from Something To Cope (page 91)

Ms. Nikki pleasures me to a point
sharp enough to pare ecstasy from semantics, 
her candor takes sure advantage of my nature 
morning in/time again

Ms. Nikki makes me know how to love
a woman though it shole makes me mad uneasy 
the way she touches my soft spot with her tongue 
black feeling/black judgment

Eye fancy us sparkin’ to the art itself & ego-trippin’ 
long & hard/eye pause to nibble the form of her 
lexis from my kisser savoring the deep violet -
the iris inhales a delectable vision

Eye imagine sharing & musing about current events 
& all we see hidden on the backside of the bush 
fiery as the cig' that she drags right before reading 
in the cloud/she exhales sacred edibles
