Black Woman with Natural Hair

She explodes through the pixilated party-crowd with effervescing energy in her honeycomb. Kinky, coily, fluffy, black stuff, sparkling and fizzing towards the bar...where I stand. In her milky white dress, she radiates her foamy halo in my face. The hair whispers to me, and takes me. The cameo’s over, the music floods back. She glides away with me.

  3. I feel you about the outgrowing thing. So many unpublished pieces on my computer cos I can't shake the feeling I should have outgrown the topics. I missed this style of writing too. Please, don't abandon it.

    1. Thank you for the kind words, my friend. I will see if I can sustain the style with slightly 'older' content. Hmmm.
