Poem: Intro.

Like Jay-Z,

‘Allow me to reintroduce myself…’

_____________________

My name is Ivie,

Not Ovie,

Evelyn,

Or Vivian.

_____________________

It sounds like

Eee-Vee-Yei,

I’ve pronounced it

For people about

A million times.

_____________________

I’ve got a quick mind,

Lovely eyes,

And sharp wit.

A pretty face,

A crown of hair,

And nice hips.

_____________________

My intense looks

Scare some people off,

But

I’m not always

Thinking about

Anything serious.

_____________________

I think about

My hopes and dreams for

The future,

Or if I want my next poem

To be silly or demure.

_____________________

I also think

About why that love

Couldn’t accept

What I had to give,

But I dont dwell on that

For too long:

Because

I’m not a detective.

_____________________

I’m a moody princess

Who speaks my mind.

I’m a precious gem;

The type that’s hard to find.

_____________________

You could spend decades

Trying to solve

The mystery of me,

But it might be easier for you

To just accept

What you see.
