A Note from Mel

Make the connection…

Greased August 12, 2009

                                         Greased

    

                              Skin, some cartilage to a burned pop star,

                              invokes no semblance of awe,

                              as the bottomless pigment of purple.

  

                  The prerequisite for giving everything

                  is to lose your American mind

                  and much of your African phenotype.

  

                             A dream for the work of a stanza,

                             Soul’s plastic gel, family.

                             What did they become in the course of a performance?

 

         – Melanie Henderson
