Let Us Speak In Falsetto

Julia Cella

For colored boiz

For queer colored boiz

For innocent...

Funkdafied

Independent 

Intellectual 

loving

Colored boiz 

...

who rock to Betty Davis 

And Durand Bernarr


Down in the paint 

Getting crucified like a saint

Don't let another false prophet

tell ya u caint 

Light sage 

And Expel demon from cage 

Embers press against skin 

Like nagging kin

Slow to burn 

Peeling back layers 

Having left their mark

Slow to learn 

Whisper of prayers 

Left to fall silent in the dark 


But Black skin that shines

Ain't hard to find

Shea and coconut been clearing ash from bruised rinds

….

They say I’m different 'cause I’m sweet like Black berry and Red kool aid 

They say I’m different 'cause I eat ass and suck dick

But that won't have braids unraveling here sis

I can’t help it if I was born different 


But my daddy don't care

Because he loves me for real

And he’d do anything for his little queer colored boi


Say I’m different 'cause I’m sweet like black berry and Red kool aid 

Say I’m different 'cause I eat ass and suck dick

….

But don't play coy

run on Colored Boi


That's right, different

That's right, strange


when I walk, I strut 

When I talk,  I can make a nigga blush

Chassé, serve face, Don't play, 

Coons still outche lookin suus


Mouths Wide shut

Zip and hush  


Running laps around bros

Leaving unchecked stares

In the dust 


Busting out the closet on the seventh day

Having them fall to their knees.. Struck


Put your records on Colored boiz

Get floetic if u have to

Cause isn't that what charlie always want u to do


But remember

You're a wash n set away

From pressed to decompressed

From stressed to damn near fearless


Moisturize 

Leave in

And Repeat

...

Charlies 

Outchea lookin for a eunuch

Take a seat 

…..

Ease your  mind colored boi

Easy your mind 

….

Stop cradling limp dick 

docked on mom and pops shrivelling tit 

….

Hear queer colored boi talk 

Air go flat and have the nerve to scoff

Niggas forget, like nut, they small and quick to finish off

...

Their love is the worst drug 


But isn't that like a queer colored boi to flick em off with the shrug

….

Eyes tightly coiled

Whilst Charlie screaming icon-n-e-c-k

Heck 

gotta recoil

laugh from chest 

Scrunched mouth from neck


Lest I get rickety wrecked

Tagged

And checked 

Again… 


Queer Colored Boiz 

Don't Forget to do ya best and speak from the chest

… 

And if your from the ghetto 

Let us harmonize whilst we speak in falsetto
