Be That As It May

Poem By La Janine Garrett

Be that as it may
I am this person
Medium height
Vertically challenge if you ask
My tall sisters
Dark golden eyes
The eyes of a feline
With the face of golden skin
Stretched across high cheek bones
A button of a nose
And nerve rackin tiny ears
With a head full of mid-night
Hair, which was last week
This day dark chocolate with hints
Of the night
That falls upon wide shoulders
Strong shoulders, as stubborn as
They are
With curves, I’m a nice size woman
A woman you could get lost in
Lost for days
And mite I add nicely proportion
Be that as it may
I am this person
A child of Africa
A child of this America
A child of both
With a smile all her own

A Ballet Of A Thought

A faceless man is what greets me
A blind eye, outward turn to the blazing sky
Lost seeds, that had taken a long joinery
Riding the western winds


As I step to the side
Those divine tears greet me
As I stand to speck
That pulsing, demanding need

A Paper Friend

Dear paper friend
How was your day
No wind has come
n’ blown you away

Just Beautiful

Come see, the old man leap
Do you see
Do you see, how his bod shakes
Come see the old man leap

Things that of another
Simple things
