“Was the juice worth the squeeze?”
Falling for Simmi was sweet like sugar, until the taste turned bitter. And then there’s Token Toni who loves a bitta bashment and only dates Black/Brown womxn – she ain’t much better. My barber holds the cure to my lesbian urges and straight women are like junk food.
Poetry, movement and original beats underscore this story about learning to accept yourself and saying goodbye to a love turned sour.
