Queen

Her body so dense
Waddles slow in purple silk
Each movement- effort

Greased hair vibrant pink
Pulled back from mature black skin
Red lips smile at me

Queen sits in the front
Alone, making cursive notes
I think we should lunch.

You sound like you might be talking about Maya Angelou. Or Maya's momma.
