a poet to her son

the holy thrumming of the fan

in our bedroom is chanting your

lullaby in protective undertones.

 

I am cozy, staring into the poised

bassinet that will hold you just less

than cocooned to me in ten short weeks.

I practice knowing the smell of you,

I stay up later than I’m barely able just

to shake hands with the exhaustion

we’ll happily lend a room to.

 

and you – you are practicing self defense

beneath my flesh; to you, the only world there is.

I could make tiny wishes that you’d some day

tell me what my heartbeat sounds like from the inside:

glass-smooth jazz, a jagged pop beat?

 

I like to imagine my writer’s heart

beats like the honey of a romance novel,

appreciating with intensity every soft thump of life.

Saturday Gallery Visits

On Saturday I went on the hunt for Good Brunch and Good Art . That’s exactly what I Accomplished on this Day . From The Haring Exhibit to Julian Schnabel exhibit ( Which I got the pleasure of Bumping in to at his own Exhibit ! Boy was he such a Nice & Humble person ! My only regret is not actually having a conversation with the Legend himself for longer than 2 mins . There was so many things I wanted to ask him but since we were in a rush , I didn’t get to 😦 , but he seemed intrigued with my energy enough where he stood looking at me as if he sensed my vibe of an appreciative Artist myself . Till we meet again ! This time I will be prepared to converse and have my business cards Ready ! )  Brunch was @ Mothers Ruin where we enjoyed Great Food and Great Drinks . I will post tons of Art for yall to see the kind of Art Filled Day! 



ASPIRATIONS DON’T EXPIRE UNLESS YOU DO!

Life has a way of presenting itself in many forms. Answers and more questions arise , and Its not this and this isn’t that. So many things occur in the world and in YOUR WORLD that at times it can be very hard to see where life has you going or where you’re going in LIFE. It’s OKAY. No, Really! It’s O.K. We go through many obstacles and phases in our Life to experience what WE CAN as humans to make sure WE HAVE LIVED! THAT WE ARE LIVING, KICKING and SCREAMING OUR WAY TO HAPPINESS ALL WHILE LIVING! As a human living in NYC , grinding in the hustle and bustle of The Metrocard Swiping , nine to fivers , five to niners , nine to niners, and all day MTA riders. Who happen to make the Iron Horse ( which means TRAIN for you non slanguistic’s who never heard of BIG L ) their mainstay whether all day or commuting . It is a very difficult to try and follow your DREAMS as a Human being who is trying to make a positive impact in CULTURE all while trying to SURVIVE . Yes My People, we all have to pay bills,rent,living expenses,habits & hobbies. That is unless you have mommy and daddy who can take care of all of the above. More power 2 ya! I however have to grind for what i have and maintain , all while being a CREATIVE. Painting, Drawing, Writing . DREAMING! (To me Dreams are a different form of reality. They all have some sort of value whether big or small. The mind is Far Greater than what is being showed or allowed). So all I can say at this is point that I’m Figuring it out just like the rest of us who are doing it on their own. One thing is for certain, My Legacy will surpass my name in the form that I WILL IMPACT CREATIVES for the rest of existence . Bold claim to make some people would say , BUT! I’m not some people or MOST PEOPLE! THERE IS ONLY ONE ME! I declare what I want and what I’m after . SO HEAR ME OUT WORLD ! I’m COMING & I’m COMING FOR EVERYTHING THAT I WANT! SUCCESS IS THE ONLY OPTION!
