POETRY- The One

The One


Fed up with superficial sensations

I'm waiting for the next elevation of intellectual conversation

I'm waiting for the man whose understanding

Is just as commanding as his African features

I'm waiting for a teacher of men

Whose roster of women include

his mama, his sister, his cousin

and maybe one or two friends

He doesn't need 9 or 10 women to define him

Just one

I'm waiting for the man one that feeds my seed with "the Son"

and Man, when he finds me

I'm done
