like laughter from the bottom of the belly
or pillow fights turned play fights
i love you too much to fight
for something that doesn’t make us feel good.
or some part of ourselves we’ll never know again.
i always imagined your room would feel
like all the things the wind blew in.
been working. good stuff coming together. so very very elated.
Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe.

Ackee & Saltfish Trailer - Cecile Emeke
Be a fly on the wall and meet Olivia and Rachel, the stars of the upcoming short film “Ackee & Saltfish”. Adoption by Solange, wondering whether Common plays the guitar and arguments over whether couscous is rice or not all make it into the mix some how with these two best-friends.
