Cruel Intentions: Part 1 (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette, LA & Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

“Tina is such a bitch!” The girls whispered at the lunchroom table. “She’s so beautiful on the outside, but so rotten on the inside.” Too bad the girls didn’t warn the new boy about Tina. He was sitting alone wanting anyone or anything to sit next to him. And then…came Tina.

Tina flowed into the lunchroom fluid like poison seeking her next victim like a black widow. Most people that knew Tina couldn’t stand to be around her, but most who fell victim to her poison never got away. No one could avoid her sexiness, as she stood, scoping the lunchroom for her prey. Then she caught a whiff of the scent of loneliness coming off the new boy.

“Wanna come with me?” Tina whispered into the boy’s ear. Without words the boy fell seductively into Tina’s gaze.

“She’s doing it again,” the girls watched their entertainment.

“Should we do something?”

“Why would we do anything? This is Tina’s game, not ours.”

“Who is that boy anyway?”

“No one,” the girls watch the new boy leave the lunchroom with Tina.

“Where are you taking me?” the boy asked.

“To heaven,” Tina took the boy into the dark gym, where no authority was around. Without words, she pushed the new boy down onto the bleachers and got on top of him. She licked his neck. Breathed on him. Kissed his lips.

The boy was instantly hooked. He couldn’t move. He was in Tina's web.

This Little White Boy Who Wanted Some Nigger In Him (James Leland Ludeau III - Lafayette, LA)

Grew up on a plantation
Removed
Secluded from the world
I knew classes but didn’t understand race
Because what raced through my veins wasn’t something of which I could ever speak
My father could fuck the slave girls
But I couldn’t touch the men
It filled me with resentment
Fueled my resentment with lust
Until it was too much to take
It was a small contained community
White as the cotton in the fields
Only dark around the edges where the black men lived
Ploughing the fields
I’d imagine them ploughing me
Sinewy
Glistening with sweat as the sun bathed their shoulders
The sweat running down until it pooled around the waistband of their thin cotton pants
Their skin
Black, almost indigo, like night
Some like coffee with milk in it
Cafe au lait
I could smell their musk
Watched as their muscly bodies worked
I yearned
Burned
This little white boy who wanted some nigger in him
To fall beneath the weight of one
As he heaved
As he forced his throbbing cock into my crevice
I longed for even the pa…

"I Love You" is Enough (Louis Toliver Jr)

Please don’t stress I see what you do all year Everyday you show me Through your actions How much you care for me But please don’t stress It’s not money or possessions That make me give my life to you It’s the moments that are small When people don’t care to look That you show your love most So don’t stress to demonstrate What you already know you do Just say “I love you” and… My underwear will come off for you

Poet's Cry for Mike Tidewell (Barry Sons - Berwick, LA)

I heard the Politician say in a hunter’s whisper, “There’s a poet in the marsh, I heard one today. He was crying about the marshland’s accelerated decay.”
“Mr. Politician, can you help us anyway? I refuse to think our marsh is so quickly Going away. If we can scan the galaxy And bring men back from the dead, Why can’t we save our marsh? I can’t Get that around my head.”
There’s a poet in the marsh, I heard one today. Whining and crying; Who needs them anyway?” “Mr. Politician, I’m here to make you feel. Try to wrap your heart around the things that Are real. Like love and friendship passion and Sorrow; the love of earth and concern for tomorrow.”
“There’s a poet in the marsh, I heard one today." Mr. Politician, I cry for America’s wetlands,
