You gloried in the consumption
Of my Black cookie crumble/
You beckoned to tame/
From that 50 Cent music video.
While you watched with self-indulgent eyes/
Your mind quickly sifted out the gold from my chains
And sucked off my bubble gum lip gloss.
Your mother arrived through the foyer/
You turned the channel
To Gilmore Girls,
As(s) the memory of those
Candy girls shook their “Black Cards”
Back into the void of MTV.
