SIXTH WEEK THURSDAY: MOHAWK CUT PRANCING PAST THE MOUSSED AND SPRAYED

Peotry with the perception born from a lifetime of observation and experience

Here’s a poem from Granbee’s blog, It provides some food for thought.

SIXTH WEEK THURSDAY: MOHAWK CUT PRANCING PAST THE MOUSSED AND SPRAYED.

MOHAWK CUT AMONGST THE HAIR-SPRAYED

 The Mohawk-cut struts with his cute, well-toned

young self amonst the

Hair-sprayed lunchers

clean in his

N.W.A.–STRAIGHT OUT OF COMPTON

rip-sleeved tee,

Careful to swivel

away from each and every

Lifted sweet-tea and Diet Pepsi’

leaning on the counter so lithely

To pick up his mama’s order

while many $60.00 tinted heads

Oh so pucker-lipped gaze most carefully

down on their barely touched salads.

His mama had ordered the cornbread

and collard greens and a whole

Chocolate Sin layer cake, the same as I

had taken for my mother-in-law’s birthday!

 

Guess which parts of the above scene perked me up the most!
