Educated Dread Pt.1

by Susan Nava

a conception
like Adam and Eva
Bennifer and Brangelina.
I guess me and him would be Juzaana
like Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca
George Bush and Condolezza, Ellen Johnson and Liberia
he says, "Our unity is brilliant but I'd love to expand."
I smile at the fact 
that we've been victimized by emotion
love seemed to be an absurd notion
the two of us? Mr and Miss Sceptisism?
caught the bug? I blame the kissing.
He speaks, I listen.
My deep-felt blessing in disguise
my gemini 
mahogany pride
my ivory smile.
He fits my Educated Dread profile
Seek and you shall find
