BOOjuuing ( a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

BOOjuuing

root woman root woman
root woman root woman
go where you looking around
for sump’n lost inside your head
you picking there off the ground
and put it rub it on your bosom
anything that you find
then you gone you ‘til you when
you coming this way again
root woman root woman
root woman root woman
sifting dirt in your hands
got no cane there bent down low
what can you do for a man
knotty hair kinked on your head
black dirty feet in the sand
what the good is there about you
here i caint understand
root woman root woman
root woman root woman
finding what it you see
how come your eyes why they never
dont they look here at me
aint there sump’n for your hands
who sit’n here in this chair
so what the matter dont you dig
way up on in here somewhere
root woman root woman
root woman root woman
there just like you aint seen
acting strange you left along
so make it seem like you mean
but like the rest just by yourself
somewhere along in a dream
there spinning ‘round inside your head
in here where like you aint seen
root woman root woman
root woman root woman
