    My aunties dream of swimming when a child is conceived
    I used to pray they wouldn’t dream of fishes for me
    Merging genes with someone kindred, what a vision
    Could I carry a child? Would my body go the distance?
    I wanna love the way mama and Ruby loved me
    Help them form their first sentences, survive the police
    Let’s turn a phrase--I don’t wanna fight for execution stays, abbreviated living
    Don’t know if I could teach them forgiveness
    ‘Cause I ain’t mastered it
    Still giving up the master’s tools
    Still mending shit with masking tape
    Still working for the master’s school
    I pray I help you master you
    Hope you ask me bout the world
    And hope that I would tell the truth
    In my family offspring don’t spring often
    I approach the prospect of you with due caution
    My little fiction, you can rest up in my head for now
    Running through my dreams, I’m scared as hell to let you down

    What a lovely fiction you are
    What a blessed figment of my imagining
    You’re too good to be true
    But baby I could be so damn good to you

    Verse 2:
    I’m tryna be the one you manifested even when your faith had vanished
    The shorty that would short her last to give you an advantage
    And you’d do the same, passion never abandoned
    We’d manage to make a mountain out the molehill we were granted
    Black queer radical, nothing short of magical, joy like sabbatical
    Boy you make the rational factual seem frivolous, girl you on some different shit
    And gotdamnit I’m into it
    To keep it funky, I know I could make you love me
    But trust me, I’ve got some work to do to make me worth the cuffing
    Spirit told me fall back, it’ll fall in place
    And I’m turning 25 is that too old for the chase?
    If we cutting to it, I’ll be in the cutting room
    Tucking keys with love to make a masterpiece or two
    I can’t imagine what you feel like yet
    Like fiction turned fact at the moment we met
