a time to celibate

I told her to celebrate celibacy

cause his semen spat
crack and wet rocks
her nipples leaked e&j

A drunken tomorrow.

poisoned tongues for her to swallow karma
his phalyx welt like drowned ivy vines planted everywhere
no sunshine to polish the chlorophyll
just dampened highway underpasses
abandoned by 2 a.m.
strangers.

Octavia’s Note to Self

image

When I saw the “note to self” (visualization/dream board) of Octavia Butler I became inspired! Butler was the first science fiction writer to receive the coveted MacArthur Fellowship and one of the best-known females in her field. She passed away suddenly in 2006 but for those familiar with her work know that this board came to fruition!

Have you created your visualization/dream board for the new year yet?

“Say Her Name” Poetry Performance Video

“There is no fire next time, you should be on fire right now!”

This poem is from my new collection of poetry/prose, yardwork, available on Amazon or you can order an autographed copy.

I am a lover of perseverance. I am folklore. I am consistency and contradiction.
