sLOW dOWN bLUES: Time Waits For No One

by Kewayne Wadley
(Memphis Tennessee)

Long sleek black dress
Smooth silk brown skin,
Time moves entirely too fast.
I done called time & begged him
to slow down.
If time waits for no man than perhaps
if time took one look at you
he would reconsider.
I've seen the sun drench the night
over it's silk brown skin &
I've seen just how right the stars twinkle
off your hips
Your long sleek black dress.
I've called time & threatened to bop him
one in the head if he doesn't slow down.
It's not too often the night nor all of it's stars
appear as close as they have tonight
& tonight I hope you'd agree
Time moves entirely too fast
