PRINCESS
PRINCESS IN THE HOOD

 

Princess in the ‘hood

It’s not just another day
When the pillow leaves my head
Nope
I gear up. . . lashes, lid . . . the look
Don’t blame me ‘cuz your mirror don’t work. . . mine wants me
‘wawa’ my Chi. . . grins me my ‘Go girl’
Here it comes. . . my day:
     “Ugh”. . . creepy landlord in the hallway
     “Mmm”. . . chai
     “Heyyy!. . . I’m late traffic your ass somewhere else!”
Oh! Paris, we share the pain. . . tabloids, taxis and limousines
No prob. . . flit of hair. . . dash of lash
     “’Paparazzi’ should be a pizza”
     “Oops. . . forgot to text Heff”
The world wants, waits and wishes for ‘me’
     “Hey!. . . nice shoes”
