POETRY CONTEST: stay tuned...this week I will posting the rules for this contest and the winner will receive a free art from yours truly.

**UNSENTIMENTAL VALUE

A psychic once told her
That she’s a 7th Daydreamer
With promiscuous tendencies
Taught by the only man who molested her
At eight years old
She was grass-fed with lack of trust
Only learned to keep quiet eyes and legs to herself
In order to fool thuggish men who throw lies
Based on hormonal changes
They heard all the way from Port-au-Prince
To Harlem that she has the best black beans in town
And her fish will make them powerful
They assume she’ll make them lighthearted
With her innocent smile
Unaware that her grind is a cruel whip
Of salt and vinegar
I don’t love easy, she yells at them
Her kisses confuse their heart
With a tale of stale wine
She marches without solace
And chews on trauma until numbness
Reach over with tear dust
Hushing her to sleep
Their cock prayers wraps around her
as nutritional facts of life
Her bodega is sterling gold used as a doorknob
To cover her surface with their rainstorm
She carries her verbiage as mainstream
Unsentimentally she values some raunchy opinions

Hello Blog World

I know I've been missing in action, but it's been crazy busy for me. I'm getting ready for my art show on 12/13, two weeks away. I'm excited since this will be my first art show in Arizona. So, if any of you live in the area, please let me know know and I will gladly send you an invitation or if you know any friends who might be interested in purchasing. The paintings on top are my latest ones, perfect holiday gifts, right? hint, hint, lol.

Well, regardless, enjoy the poetry and have a great weekend. Ta ta for now.

Glad you are back. Missed you. And I could just kiss you for this poem/post. Brought tears, GF. Poetry is such a gift. You got it. Keep using it. And the artwork is too multi-dimensional for words, as graphic art should be, that being the very why it is. do it do it do it do it.

And don't stay gone so long.

Best wishes for your art show!
