Overheated

I can’t believe this old jalopy just overheated on my way to my appointment!  Now what am I going to do.

Time to Uber… *sighs*

Eyes On the Door…

“I wouldn’t if I were you
I know what she can do
She’s deadly man, she could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
Ooh, the beauty is there but a beast is in the heart…”
-Hall & Oates, Maneater

Have I ever told you guys how much I love Hall & Oates? They are one of my all-time favorite groups.  I don’t know why but this song just kept playing through my head as I set up my shot. Could have been these eyes, yo.

I’m definitely thinking it’s the eyes.

Phrases of Womanhood

Dedicated to Ntozake Shange

2018-11-01_015.png

Before I came to the grid, I had the opportunity to be the “Lady in Green” in a stage production of ‘For Colored Girls…’ put on by a group of my friends and I.  That book, choreopoem to be more accurate, was so revolutionary and life altering. It started to awaken part of me I didn’t even know lay dormant. In my journey of self-discovery, I had stumbled many times and tried to pick myself up.  In truth, I still struggle with many things I find wrong with myself. And I work on them slowly but surely as I am capable.  But every day I try to be a little bit more gentle with my psyche, my soul.  And handle myself with more tenderness than I used to.  I don’t always succeed, mind you. None of us really do.  But that struggle, that push…I feel like that the opening piece speaks to this in many ways in this magnificent piece of literature. This book it began to empower me in ways I didn’t know nor was I familiar with. It further helped me stay on the path to finding my voice.

Earlier this week, we lost the deliverer of this affirming message to women and it reminded me of the phases we go through as people, not just women.  But it also reminded me that I am very much a woman; a black woman who is learning to handle herself warmly…constantly working on not only writing the song of my life, but singing it every day to stay in the light.  So, I wanted to share this excerpt with you all because I love it so much.

“somebody / anybody
sing a black girl’s song
bring her out
to know herself
to know you
but sing her rhythms
carin/ struggle/ hard times
sing her song of life
she’s been dead so long
closed in silence so long
she doesn’t know the sound
of her own voice
her infinite beauty
she’s half-notes scattered
without rhythm/ no tune
sing her sighs
sing the song of her possibilities
sing a righteous gospel
let her be born
let her be born
& handled warmly.”
Ntozake Shange, an excerpt from “Dark Phrases” a poem from the book ‘for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf’
Rest in power, Queen Ntozake.

Waiting in the Corner…

2018-10-16_007

I was walking to my next rendezvous point and I thought the address was a tad shady. The setup: I was to seduce my mark and entrap him.  Everything was perfect: my hair, the clothing, my makeup…PERFECT.  But I digress. Something felt…off; way off.  This didn’t feel like any other assignment. There was a lingering of imbalance in the air.

2018-10-16_003

As I reached to grab the doorknob to enter the hotel, I heard a sound.  Nothing that a regular person would have detected, but a sound that was misplaced for this part of town.  I loudly opened the door and fake walked into the hotel so as to make it seem like I went inside, but went flush to the wall instead to stake out who was approaching; pistol loaded in case I needed to shoot…my hand covering the piece in case others walked past. The footsteps became heavier and slightly uneven in tone, suggesting this person had an injury.  A few more seconds and I’d know who was on my tail.  Until then, however, I’ll wait here in the corner until my prey is revealed.

Hangry Mommy

Ooh I am so angry right now!

2018-10-03_012

So after treating myself to a new do over at the salon, I thought it’d be a good idea for me to head on over to the carry-out and pick us up some wings.  Y’all just don’t know…these wings, I drive across the grid for these wings!  But when I get there, everything looks different!  The street is all murky, Officer Friendship’s car is partly in a building and no one is around.  Then all of a sudden, I hear growling and for once it’s not my tummy.  So I turn around and see this gang of zombies trying to come up on me.

2018-10-03_018

Look. I am hungry, hormonal and all I want is to satisfy this never ending craving for chicken and y’all wanna press up on me, while I’m looking cute? Oh heeeeeell to the nah! I grabbed the stranded cross bow and gun, strapped them on and loaded up!  I shot a few and got blood on my cute outfit and that just made me even more angry!

Listen here Zombies: what you’re NOT going to do today is ruin my new do, my clothes and keep me from my chicken! We have got too much going on for you to think you’re just going to come for me. No sir, not today!  I need…NEEED this chicken!  I’m packin’ and I’m piiiiissed!  You will NOT stop me from getting my chicken!  Out of the way, you bastards!

*mumbles something about them got her up here goin’ all Black Betty on their asses over some damn chicken…* smh
