Really, I really do
Makes my eye water
My mouth waters too
Red onions, yellow onions
White onions and green onions
Even a half-way decent chef knows it
Will bring good flavors out of any dish
When you add an onion to your pot
We bring out the best in others
I mean, the onion does that
Referring to food right?
Peel back my layers
For I am an onion
I’m not a real poet. I’m a fake one. But when anyone opens with a poem…they appear to be deep. I’m deep. I want to attract deep people. So eat that poem like its rice and onions. Go on. Find hidden meanings in it and brag to me that you uncovered what I was trying to say. Prove to me how brilliant you are. I will take credit of those concepts that you found buried between the lines, which actually landed there on accident. I will render you a couple of silent head nods as I kick into my le poete stance. You begin to explain to me that you get me. You tell me that you get the whole onion thing. I smile. You smile back thinking ‘she likes me.’ I evaluate all that you’ve deciphered in my poem. You’ve proposed some fresh ideas. I will take the credit. You said the poem takes you to a place of inspiration; a place where you want to have a positive impact on your surroundings. It really does take you there? Would you like to know where it takes me? Onions takes me to my stovetop? What’s for dinner tonight.
It’s not that deep.
But it is.
Some people call me Mecca
While others call me sarge
A few call me boss lady
And that other few call me friend
Some call me by my body
Others call me by my mind
Many call me baby
Just as many want to call me wife
I’m looking for the one
who calls me by name.
I’m not here to fill a position, I’m here to be me. Get to know me.

Good music is medicine to the soul. Good music is also subjective.

I’m sending Okcupid: Sikuz a message right now.
LOL is not an adequate response.
‘Hey’ is a remedial attempt to start a conversation. First develop your thought and then text me.
If I don’t message back, it’s because I don’t want to waste your time.
So don’t fret if you get the wondering if I received your message or not.
I probably did see it. As soon as you sent it.
