Blues In Your Left Thigh

Tryin to become the funk in your right.

I’m not sure why I thought about this today, but I did. This scene defines cool. Darius Lovehall, played by Larenz Tate (Crash, Dead Presidents, Menace II Society) delivers one of the most effortlessly smooth poems to Nina (“thought I needed a Nia Long”) in Love Jones, backed by the sax and stand-up bass. You should probably see this movie if you haven’t before.

Say baby, can I be your slave
I’ve got to admit it girl, you’re the shit girl
And i’m diggin’ you like a grave ….
Now do they call you daughter to the spinnin’ post
Or maybe Queen of 2,000 Moons
Sister to the distant, yet risin’ star
Is your name Yimmy-Ya
Oh hell nah-it’s got to be Oshun
Ooo, is that a smile me put on your face child
Wide as a field of Jasmine and clover
Talk that talk honey, walk that walk money
Hound legs that’ll spank Jehovah
Shit, who am I?
It’s not important
But they call me Brother to the Night
And right niw
I’m the blues in your left thigh
Tryin’ to become the funk in your right

Who am I?
I’ll be whoever you say
But right now, i’m the sight raped hunter
BLindly pursuing you as my prey
And I just wanna give you injections, of sublime erections
And get you to dance to my rhythm
Make you dream archaetypes of black angels in flight
Upon wings of distorted, contorted, metaphoric jism
Come on Slim
Fuck yo’ man, I ain’t worried about him
It’s you who I wanna step to my scene
Cause rather than deal with the fallacy
Of this dry ass reality
I rather dance and romance your sweet ass, in a wet dream
Who am I?
Well they call me Brother to the Night
And right now, i’m the blues in your left thigh
Tryin’ to become the funk in your right
Is that alright?

    You know, I was originally cast as Nina…but the deal fell through. You know how it goes.
