where the bitchery ends, sisterhood begins --
fifty sleep-overs later --

in a manner most felonious --
the eviction --
mass media mania --
let us pray --
steppin off on the x-wearers --
suckling the enemy --
the dreadful dreads --
the night something precious was split open --
frustration in the gyrations --
sanfran breakdown --
new yorked out --
to any brotha that fits --
no cross-roads to even consider --
who told u / u could put that on --
for a semi-precious moment --
u've got to pay --
a man like malcolm --
the yielding --
the ball is always in yr court --
half-steppin thru history --
domiabra --
the end of the revolution --
if u wanna kno how i feel about Blackmen just ask me.
