GUT PUNCHING POET * TRASH TALKER FOR THE YOUTH

Jerry West By West,

First Appeared in Barzakh Magazine 2019

Either you're slinging crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot- Biggie Smalls

By God, he’s from the West by West of Virginia. 


You’re no ball player if you don’t practice in the off-season.  Where I come from ball is all we have.  I ask my Cleveland scholars who say I’m country, but if you’re from Boone County, you think I’m city, who is the man on the NBA logo?  These city boys don’t know. 

My scholars remind me of the boys I played ball with.  These city boys different though, they don’t sleep with basketballs on their pillows, they don’t practice their follow through with an imaginary ball, they have no concept of, this is our court, you a scrub, you have to earn your right to play here.

 

Jerry West by West by West,

He’s from the West by West of Virginia,

It’s between Chelyan & I want that

NBA money – pass me the rock,

I want NBA moneypass me the rock.

Shot - dribble - pass – shot – dribble - pass,

Shot – Shot.  Those city boys don’t know how us country boys do.      

Professional sports lead our youth to believe athletics are the only way out. 

 

I want that NBA money.  Buy expensive clothes, get my momma a house and get us out of West Virginia.  You a ball player or you just play ball?  You’re no ball player if you don’t practice in the off- season.  Where I come from hustling is all we have.

Lipstick and Earrings

First Appeared in Feminine Rising: Voices of Power and Invisibility

(Cynren Press 2019)


Long hair, red, never wore any wigs. 

Bold, brassy, sassy and a little trashy.

He was a she with an attitude,

taught to him by old movies &

calendar pictures of pinup girls. Him

wearing pink lipstick with a pinup curls,

painted nails, satin panties and lace bras.

 

He’d teach me,

men will try to get your cookies if you let them.

Sit like a lady, watch me.

Cross at the ankle not the knee.

Sit with your knees together.

 

Dresses that hung to the floor.

Drag-shopping with my Uncle,

only my brother and I can call him Uncle.

Uncle Jimmy she,

Prudence Dianna Lovejoy

a queen.

 

Pumps in every color

He would let me line them up in his closet,

pretending they were my shoes.

 

Pantyhose with baby powder.

That’s how you get them on.

Foundation, cake it on. 

The lights are bright when I’m on stage.

Blush you’ll never need, pretty pink cheeks.

 

A man taught me how to be a woman.

Eye shadow, liner, mascara and lipstick.

Tuesday, you’ll never lip liner.

Yes, men, most will cheat,

It’s not you it’s them.

Never kiss on the first date

a girl has to have standards.

Don’t sell it on the first date,

imagination is all men want. 

 

Lipstick and earrings that dangled.

Falsies I would put under my shirt,

pretending they were my own breasts.

 

You’re going to grow into such a beautiful woman,

said to me by Ms. Gay West Virginia.

I would watch him transform.

Paralyzed by him and the master piece

of cross dressing.

 

Be who you are and be proud.

God and I we have talked,

He made me a queen.  

Men will adore you

just like I do

said to me by 

a man who lives his life as a woman.

 

As a little girl, I’d run downstairs, introducing him

Now presenting the Queens of all

Queens, Prudence

Dianna Lovejoy.

My uncle Jimmy She!

 Tuesdays With Tuesday is ABOUT……

Me & Anything I want to discuss

Order Today!!

Tomboy Blues is a captivating poetry collection about the tenacity of a 14-year-old girl, who adores Michael Jordan, her womanhood is explained by her Trans Uncle known as “Prudence” and defeating poverty, is more than an education. Tomboy Blues encourages little girls to shoot basketball wearing a dress, fight against all obstacles while brightly smiling with pretty teeth and to never ever forget Tomboys are Prom Queens.
