O. M., WOODBRIDGE, VA By Mckay, Somewhere, VA

"Red lips, flushed flesh, fair hair,"
Want the lips of the black man.
Where will the red lips of
The black woman turn to?

I actually had to re-read this to fully appreciate how incredibly awesome it is. And then re-read it again. You're an incredible poet.

This is a very descriptive poem. It's got this almost open ended feeling because it's so short, but it's intriguing with the description you use. Very interesting

I also thought this poem would go unappreciated—guess not. Thank you.
