INTRODUCTION

“This is a man’s world, but it wouldn’t be much without a woman’s touch.” ~ James Brown.

Women of color come in all shapes, sizes, and shades. Some are slim and some are full-figured. Some are short and some are tall. Some are as fair-skinned as vanilla ice cream and others are as dark and lovely as an onyx stone.

Women make a man’s world go round. From our earliest days as a little boy our moms are the apples of our eyes. When we become a teenager some other little lady becomes the object of our affection. We talk a lot of trash about women from time to time like we don’t need them. The fact is thought that we need them and we want them.

The current state of Rap music is indeed in a sad state of affairs as it is the only genre of music that degrades black women. During the golden age of Rap/Hip Hop (late 80s), acts like KRS-ONE, Queen Latifah, and Public Enemy kept us politically and culturally conscious, but today, the music is so misogynistic. I figured that I wanted to do my part and get away from the hurtful and harmful, and get back to the good old days where people like Smokey Robinson and the Isley brothers sang about “Ebony Eyes” and “Living for the Love of You”. This book is a love ballad in appreciation of Black and Hispanic women.

Most men would never buy a bottle of cologne, do one push-up, or buy expensive clothes if it were not for the sake of a woman. This book is testament to the beautiful Hispanic and Black women in NYC. Nothing is wrong with women from other racial and ethnic groups, but Hispanic and Black women have a swagger that always will keep a twinkle in my eye and a smile on my face. I may be attached, but I am certainly not blind!

A common pattern of my poems is that the last two lines rhyme, and the poem’s title is in the last line of the poem.

I hope that you enjoy my 31 poems of tribute to all of the beautiful women of color in NYC.

This is a follow-up to my first poetry book, For the Love of Women of Color. Like the first book, this book has 31 poems dedicated to all of the lovely Black and Latin women in NYC. There is absolutely nothing wrong with women of other colors, nationalities or ethnicities. I have just chosen to reference Black and Latin women. These are the women with whom I’ve had the most exposure. Therefore, I will talk about that which I know about.

The poems in this book range from romantic to erotic, from being apologetic to suffering heartbreak, love to lust, and from social issues to just plain trash talking.

This book is entitled The Morning After as it is my second poetry book in the romance and erotic genre. Writing the first book, For the Love of Women of Color was so well received it was like having toe curling sex then waking up with the pleasure of having to do it again. For all intents and purposes, this is a continuation of the first book so I subtitled it For the Love of Women of Color Book II.

The Morning After is currently available in soft cover/chapbook format. You can purchase a copy for $5.95 by CLICKING HERE.

In all of my poems, the title of the poem is always in the last line of the poem. Sometimes the last two lines may even rhyme, but not always. This has been my signature that I started back in the 1990s.

A good number of my poems do not rhyme but I strive to create a vivid mental picture in the reader’s mind. To accomplish this I rely heavily on the use of simile and metaphor. Some examples of poems where I endeavor to do this are “The Lady that Dances in My Dreams,” “Compassionate Superwoman Lover,” and “Call Me Mr. Goodbar.”

I also have a few rhyme scheme poems — poems where every two lines rhyme. These are not Hip Hop styled raps. They are conversational and meant to be spoken, not yelled. Some of the poems written in this style are “What Could’ve Been,” “The Flutter of Butterfly Wings,” and “I’m NOT that Dude!”

In this book, I will introduce you to two poetic styles that I created. The first is called a Haiku Chain Poem. First of all, a haiku is a Japanese form of poetry composed of three lines with a total of 17 syllables. The three lines have 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables respectively. What I do in a haiku chain is to connect several related haiku together to create one larger poem. I am very proud of this innovation that I created. “Law of Attraction,” “Can’t Get Over You,” “Smooth Operator” and “I am Akuba” are a few of the poems written in this style.

I also created a style of prose that I call See & Say Poems where I start with a short scene (prologue) then go into a rhyme scheme poem. “Shaken, not Stirred,” “A Breath of Fresh Air,” and “Classy Lady” are written in this style.

I am oftentimes asked where I get my inspiration. Well, I am inspired by the people around me; friends, family, acquaintances, and coworkers. They have started calling me “The Iron Chef of Poetry” as they will give me a concept or a phrase then I’ll write a poem built on that “ingredient.” All praises due to the MOST HIGH, from whom all blessings flow, for this talent.

The Morning After is currently available in soft cover/chapbook format. You can purchase a copy for $5.95 by CLICKING HERE.
