Finish the Sonia Sanchez poem

Sonia Sanchez has always been one of my fav poets, and there is this one joint about sex that I really like to read to see exactly where my mind is at at the moment in reference to finishing it. So read the poem below and finish it the way you would in the comments.











Good Morning, sex. How do you do?
Tell me how life's been treating you.
You say what? Sex is and sex ain't
sex wuz and sex wuzn't
sex should be and sex has been
on Time Square billboards
on television, in the movies,
in the lyrics dripping off pouting lips.
You say sex is in the drinks we drink
the laughs we laugh
the walk we walk
the smells we smell as we open
our eyes and legs and let the funk spread.
You say sex is dark basements
lights turned out, bodies turned on.
Sex is a breakfast table full of
leftover wine and smiles.
Sex is kinky & clean shaven
sex is straight & gay
sex is do it anyway.
Comes in twos and threes.
Comes on time. Late.
Sex is love. Unlove.
Comes with danger & beauty
Comes in clean and shadowy places.
Sex is life. Death. A gig.
Sometimes you need it in the
Morning. Afternoon. Evening.
Sometimes it satisfies; sometimes it don't
sometimes you feel it in yo' armpits
sometimes you feel it in the mind,
but ah, ahhh, when it comes
this sex, when it appears
buck naked and clothed,
when it comes Thelonious Monk-like jazzy,
when it comes hip hopping like the nite
ain't like no other nite; ya
know what time it is, what day
it is, what month it is, what year
it is. When it comes RIGHT, you
understand that sex is & sometimes it ain't
But when it is...






Here is my ending :

...it is so humbling.
Knowing that when that jones comes down
that you can't even control it.
No matter how hard you try to be tough,
your body starts to shake,
the sweat is dripping down,
holding your breath while climaxing to that high
in order to keep it all in.
Thinking that will help it last forever.
Until you can't help but to release.
Or if you got a really good one,
explode!

It gives you that calm
Like after the storm
Smooth’s out your edges
Calms your goddamn nerves
Ahhh

Sex.
It’s that gift like no other
Best when gotten from your special lover
Whether shaken or stirred
It rubs you in all the right places
Better now
Than it was then

We were begotten from sex
It’s like a trusted old friend.

...it is the perfect release. It's all about the touch and feel, the right here and right now. And you are just.....you. Beautiful and free and real and perfect. So, you try to make it last, but it never does.

MY GOD.
When it is, it's always over too soon, making me hurry to finish enjoying the top of this mountain so that I can hurry to the next one.
It is my white dragon and I take my trusty silver sword to chase it so that I can try to slay it another day.

I love Sonia Sanchez too! I met her a few years ago..Very down to Earth sister. She used to teach here at Temple University for awhile..I don't know if she still does or lives in this area or not.

Rich Fitzgerald January 13, 2009 at 3:51 PM

I was just following orders. I liked your ending too. I'm glad y'all are digging the style. I have been trying to up the ante on my writing game.

It's a soothing balm
a distant calm
like sea air and waves
it braves the impossible
it seeks the incredible
it's my high and my low
it's spiritual and sings
it's the best day of Spring
it's warm and inviting
it's like a winter frost
a minus degree chill
a turbulent ride
the best kind of thrill
It is...absolutely wonderful!

Xcentric Pryncess January 13, 2009 at 9:02 PM

it is what connects
my pu**y to your psyche
your penis to my pleasure and
at that moment
nothing matters...not
bills
loans
notes
mortages
nothing.

Um, I'm a virgin - I can't finish this!

I think I've read too much already.

Super Dave Van Buren January 14, 2009 at 11:14 AM

I liked this idea but I can't think of anything to finish it.. lol Maybe that means I need some sex.

damn she pretty (i) January 14, 2009 at 12:35 PM

But when it is....

It's aDDICTive...
I can barely escape minutes
without thoughts of you
Bullying their way into my mind
consuming my thoughts
making me feverish….
Shaking
Aching
Body needing quaking
by the erotic high
of your sweet
Overdosing luvin

I'm ADDICTed......
Can I get hit
of your shit?
A lil tote
of your stroke?

Yet the same
That ails me
Cures me with your touch
Heals me with your kisses
Your intense passion resurrects
This junkie’s soul
It medicates
Rejuvenates
Resuscitates this ailing body
And feigning spirit

My PRESCRIPTION.....
I’ll take a patch
Liquid, cream
Tablet or pill
Just can I get a refill?

My sweet addiction
to your prescription....SEX! SEX! SEX SEX!
dsp

p.s. I LUV Sonia Sanchez!
