New Poetry From Mista Jaycee

I wish I had noticed your Third Eye! I wish I had paid attention to your BA degree! Your LEXUS! The way you raised your child! But I didn't!
I didn't see the MBA, The Chi, The Third EYE! I didn't notice you were a Church Woman!
I wish I had seen the third Eye, heard your intelligent conversation when first we met
I, in metamorphosis between the Yo Baby and Excuse me Miss have we met? Not Yet?
I wish I had seen your character, the MBA, The stylishness of your dress, before I let you pass
But I didn't notice any of those thangs! Not your MBA, Your Masters, Your BA, THE LEXUS, YOUR WELL BEHAVED CHILD! I DIDN'T NOTICE? As I let you ....pass
It was your azz!

That's from my third chapbook Brotha Sings the Blues!
Women always complain Men always notice their bodies before anything else so I wrote that!

I'm trying to catch up on reading your posts. I don't know how your list grew so long. I'll stop here.

For some reason, the only comment I can remember is that I once broke up with my boyfriend because his jerry curl broke me out. Had to let him go, honey.
