"Afro Woman says music is deeper than feeling and sweeter than fruit. Vital to my culture. So hit me with that African music." -by Sudanese artist, Artman Vibration @samir2art112

i have heard stories of great men
by the pens of dead victors
their words as honest
as reputation supersedes detail
so your pillow tells me more of the kings then they ever will
more than their advisors
more than their administrators
you were made equals
impregnating you with their hearts
consummating you with their dreams
pharaoh buried you alive
couldn’t live
couldn’t die without you
creepy as all get out
but you are the strength of a
hundred million men assaulting a bulwark
converted to a goddess
of ideation

*modified excerpt from “black woman”, a love letter to my wife*
