Day 30 – When Poems Bite Back (For Granny, and Everyone Else I Write About)

By on April 30, 2014

 

I

I always knew this day would come.
I just didn’t think it would be so soon,
or from such an objector.
But I guess no one likes to have their truth
chewed up and spat back at them.

II

My granny called me late last…

Day 29 – Things Tonika Taught Me

By on April 29, 2014

 

I

The proper way to eat an apple –
hollow out a ring around the center,
then attack the top and bottom remnants.

The true meaning of the phrase
“you’re welcome” – as in
“you’re welcome to hold me like that whenever you need to.”

The magic and…

Day 28 – No poetry came for me today

By on April 28, 2014

 

No poetry came for me today,
brought no bottom-dollar bail to break the bonds,
left me to rot behind the bars of spreadsheet cells.

She hadn’t shown in form-fitting clothes
as something for me to lust after,
no shifting curves for me to replay…

Day 27 – America, This Is How I Defend You

By on April 27, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have talked for a hundred hours
about your politics, economic policies, and people
over my past three months abroad.

I think I have spent more time discussing you
while away from you
than when you were beneath my feet.

I have heard different perspectives
as numerous…

    • So I crossed another item off my #NewOrleans bucket list yesterday: finally ran the Crescent City Classic! #ccc10k // I finished the race at exactly an hour for the 6.2 mile course, giving me a pace of 10 min./mile. Didn't stop the whole time, which was my only goal. Really proud of this given the very minimal training I'd done. Admittedly, the body hurts a bit today though. // The weather was gorgeous and seeing the city in this way was so very unique, and I'm glad I got to share the moment with my sister. :) #running #RaceNewb
    • Got the chance to spend today doing some quality day-drinking in #NewOrleans with my leeeedle sister for her 25th birthday. Love ya, Brooketsa! #HalfWayToFifty, #StillYoungerThanMe
    • As seen in a gas station in Whereinthefuck, Alabama. There's layers here, folks. If you keep looking, you keep finding hidden redneck gems in there. #NoneOfThisGoesTogether
    • Y'all, if ya missed out on the #DadsGarage carnival yesterday, ya done goofed. #Hilarious people, great times, and gorgeous weather. Happy to have volunteered with these amazing folks. #Atlanta, #WhosYourDaddy
    • I'm still thinking about this phenomenal #play that I had the honor of seeing last night. Still extracting lessons from Topher's great #writing (so many plot twists!) and Gina's, Parris', and the whole cast's spot-on acting! The #Atlanta #theater scene is stacked, y'all! #art
    • That time the undefinable #artist and #storyteller @mintonsparks came to #Atlanta and wowed the crowd at the intimate and warm @groceryonhome. I first saw her perform in college 8 years ago, and I knew immediately that I wanted to see her again. (Thanks, @liesel.sloan!) #community
