i lost a whole continent. 
a whole continent from my memory. 
unlike all the other hyphenated americans
my hyphen is made of blood. feces. bone.
when africa says hello
my mouth is a heartbreak
because i have nothing in my tongue
to answer her.
i do not know how to say hello to my mother.

—Nayyirah Waheed

This is so dope! And as a first tattoo?! The Perfect Nayyirah Waheed poem to go with it?! You’re the shit!!

Beauty secret Saturday.  For whiter, brighter teeth, I dip my toothbrush in baking soda EVERY time I brush my teeth, twice a day EVERY day. For a happy smile, fake it till you make it.
