Went to a speaker series for black history month for extra credit and left having a lot of respect for this woman. She underwent a couple strokes in the past decade so it was hard to understand her but I heard her loud and clear when she recited this poem.

no assistance

without any assistance or guidance from you,
i have loved you assiduously for 8 months 2 weeks & a day.
i have been stood up four times,
i’ve left 7 packages on yr doorstep,
forty poems 2 plants & 3 handmade notecards i left
town so i could send to you

you have been no help to me
on my job
you call at 3:00 in the mornin on weekdays
so i could drive 27 1/2 miles cross the bay before i go to work.
charmin charmin,
but you are of no assistance

i want you to know
this was an experiment
to see how selfish i could be.
if i would really carry on to snare a possible lover
if i was capable of debasin my self for the love of another
if i could stand not being wanted
when i wanted to be wanted
& i cannot
so
with no further assistance & no guidance from you
i am endin this affair.

this note is attached to a plant,
i’ve been watering since the day i met you.
you may water it,
your damn self

shoutout to Miss Lauryn Hill

Could it be, if you could
be mine, we’d both shine
If I ruled the world
Still living for today, in
these last days and times

Aladin: “Do you trust me?”

Jasmin: “Yes?”
