tabletops

I shouldn’t - no -
this isn’t right
just this morning I sat here, foot tapping
and my spoon was silver clashed against a bowl of strawberries
that stained my teeth bloody
and just this morning a newspaper was folded right on the corner there-
but now the headlines of “six dead” are thrown to the chairs in pure headrushes

and just this morning my father sat stern and steady and staring
and my mother tried laughing to make the atmosphere airy
but I couldn’t feel anything but weight in my stomach and now it’s slowly fleeing me
as worn as this is the table top is smooth as your words

your jackets dropped on those black and white horrors now
I’m typing up a story of my own headlines now
and the strawberries I’d traded for lipstick at 9PM when I left this househole
but the lipstick is as mussed as my hair
wrong, wrong, wrong - on a tabletop? right here?

but when you’ve felt nothing for so long,
and the chance of anything comes in
I’d rather the carousel over the ferris wheel in terms of how my stomach churns
and your lips make me feel so so so, as so
carousel, carousel, circling and cycles

tabletops, I shouldn’t - no -
we’ve said grace here, our souls prayed here
but there’s grace in your lips on my bones and, I-
think there’s something eerily poetic
in that the place where I have eaten and fed this body you are touching
every day of my untied shoe life;
this place is the same where my heart is feeding off your touch
we are eating each other’s emotions
feasting on fool’s feeling

this is temptations tabletop
and we devour each other like kings and queens

Temptaion

Sex is a gift from God but we’ve taken it and made it idolatry
We’ve taken it and put it in the place of God
And we worship it and so it comes out in all kinds of profane ways
And so we blame the women for what they’re wearing
And we blame the media for what they’re producing
But we never blame ourselves
For how we’ve twisted God’s gift to glorify us

Tyler Perrys Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counsler
I dont know why I still go to Tyler Perry movies. I try to support black films as much as possible but if youre gonna make a black fiom can you make a good one. Theres no excuse to produce such a predictable, poorly acted, poorly written film that tries shed light on young black life but instead perpetuates black stereotypes.
Come for the game this brother plays for 90 minutes stay for……. Stay for……. Stay for the bad acting?

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”-1 Corinthians 10:13
