A Year Ago, Tomorrow

“De Temps En Temps,” by Josephine Baker. That’s what I was listening to. Funny now to think I'd ever forget how it felt, something like that. 

 

Alone and facing my death in a stranger’s beach house, next to a dark, cold, ocean in the dead of Winter.

The Violence Now of Miss Anthropocene

The sound of “Violence”

I can feel it

 

Heavy-

Weight in

My stomach

 

Standing on

The ledge, again

 

Don’t move

The poison running through

My veins, I feel it

Hurting me, helping me

 

Smells of

Pink plastic wig

Pretty pink perfume

Don’t let me

They invade your heart

Until you must look at them

All so that they can violate you again

They...

Lucky Girl

i am a lucky girl.

 

just recently i read that

on average

people take around 24,000 breaths 

everyday 

in between words

and laughs 

and running late to their jobs.


today i watched an old

PJ Harvey concert on tv

she was singing and

screaming and

breathing 

all over the place-

it was great

i bet i took a thousand breaths 

just sitting there watchi...

With Allah...I can , so i will.

Aspirations...Where we are and where we want to be?

My aspirations have always focused on being a world-renowned, bestselling author, however, i have found great value in fact, total gratification in knowing my pieces help people whether i get paid or not.

Where i come from...where i am...and where i want to be is a constant and ongoing journey.

I have come very far from the young girl wh...

The word's of

inspiration,

that certain

written on the

walls inked

I'll always

takes the last
