We are a hot topic
A target audience
In the middle of the circle
under heavy scrutiny and examination
Lustful eyes tell us we are not beautiful
but saliva drips from those hard words.
and erections abound.
We are consumed as painful desserts
and exotic delicacies
hidden from ego’s haunting.
We’re fighting conflicting wars
injecting for power over darkness
bleaching to the right goodness

sweating against fat on white house carpets.
They hate us
He love us
He hate us
We love us
We hate us
We show for celebration and exploitation
and gain from our beauty lying in pain.
How do we use something that we don’t have?
I have compiled links that address the Black body, booty and beauty.
What is your take on our attractiveness? Where do we stand in the view of America? Where do we stand in our own perception? Are we exploiting ourselves in art and media or are we celebrating ourselves? Are we being exploited or celebrated? by society? by ourselves?
