Black love

Stacy Sapp Dortch 1969 (Millen)

Classic beauty
Tightly curled locks
glistening in sun☀️
Unified Eyes connected as one
Crafty build muscles
with copper bronze skin
Beautiful Nubian stallion
And the races they win
Neatly cut taped line
With handsome chisel face
Trimmed goatee
Meets her beauty
And elegant grace
Kind heart, nice words♥️
Sweet as molasses
Brown sugary embraces
In private places
Prim and proper
With her passion masked by glasses
Porgy and Bess opera
Accompanied by baby grand
as chocolate hand
Work magic as a gifted barber
connected with her darkened skin
The skill maestro called it to be so
Struck up a classical
and spiritual CEO
Black rose uniqueness
Leontine - gifted virtuoso
So powerfully driven through
As a teacher with her pupils
A Dark cypress midnight
By a poet who name is James
Meets a Swiss chocolate dame
Hidden behind Veil
which is her Name.
