I have two voices.
One in my head,
the other between my legs.
Both controlling the other
no other person I know would disagree.
Erect and posed proudly
I think.
I walk.
Therefore I am
in total and absolute proof control.
Picking labels like text book courses
to be studied
and remembered.
Pushing in deep and pulling out
an interjection here or there.
Seldom I am down for the count
on facts to think about
as I throw myself ever deeper
upon the mercy
of a thought from within.
The inner being of knowledge
carnal and tamed,
frustrated and buried
inundated with heavy thoughts
where I placed flowers over the graves
of brain cells decayed.
I have witnessed my growth for a thousand or more years.
Witnessed it from two perceptions.
In my head
and between my legs.

Yeah I do this one when I open up at an Open Mic or Poetry Slam ... to bad people think its erotic when its really about respecting the Black Mind and not this Black Thang.
