Dimensions of Humor 11/24 by Night T | Blog Talk... →
Time to laugh at ourselves and other people too. Don’t you feel blessed to have a job, but sometimes……or maybe you take a second look at people who are not as bright as they think they are…or want you to think they are. There is a lot of foolishness in our society and it’s not going anywhere, but looking at it with humor and saving our regard for more meaningful...
I’ve been asked to do an encore presentation. Enjoy awesome images from the civil rights Era.

I will recep some of the feature prose from my one woman show at the Imperfect Gallery in Philadelphia addressing our history as a function of a meaningful future with sustainable change to benefit everyone. Hatred and disdain isn’t necessarily thel red meat savagery that was prominent in our history. It is subtle and sometimes normalized blinding even well meaning people into promoting...

An overveiw of first book Let Me Tell YouWhat Mama Said. Ancestral roots that help weather modern day storms
Nobody knows where the nose goes when the door’s closed.– Who knows?
Your mouth is no prayer book and your ass is no bible.– unknown
Wash Day from the book Mood Swing
Patience is a virtue, so I’ve been told. It takes time for lies to unfold. Sometimes the outcome isn’t revealed until the story is old. It may be months or years for the truth to come about, Mama told me if you wash clothes long enough, The dirt will come out. Doubtful I was when I first heard the news About who was caught in a lie giving everyone permission to abuse. Something about it just...

Moon Dreams (Miles Davis)
Oh, trumpeter speak to my dreams. Caress my naked soul. Soothe the loneliness that endlessly streams From my nights long and cold Embouchure serenade Into my vulnerable spirit he invades Love my hungry nectar Dry my isolated tears Come deep into my darkness My secret place that’s close and dear Blow my sadness out of sight Full moon dreaming a dream Bringing peace into my poignant...
Nightmare Prayer I watched a mother’s heart ripped completely out of her soul. I watched her eyes not believing what she was told She has the corpse of her child to bury She has untold grief to endure Her world has turned upside down with heartache and worry And there’s nothing to reassure She’ll ever be the same again Does it ever get better she cried Does the pain ever go away? No! A...

Reblog if You're a Poetry Blog
I never knew the word until I heard Angela Davis speak, About a dominant culture that keeps the common man voiceless and weak. They use a kaleidoscopic lure To convince us the courts, politicians and law enforcement are fair, just and pure. Arbitrary is a tool they use to make it all seem normal. They mold our minds with tinsel grins and cups of coffee; Using jargon that’s seemingly informal....

Forty is the old age of youth… Fifty is the youth of old age– Victor Hugo
From the CD ’ Night of Poetry and...
You can’t understand what the noise was all about, Unless you know what happened before. You have to get past the protests and shouts, And look at a time right after the war. Battle fatigue and economic meltdown. Had just about worn this country to the ground, Vets needed serenity, And fulfill the dream of a comfortable life. They wanted peace and prosperity, Of a nice home and a young...
What the Hell?
I don’t know what made me stop to look, To stand still in a world of confusion, But I used all the time it took, And finally came to the conclusion, We must have lost our minds. We’re bombarded with dizzy pursuits that lead to absolutely nowhere, Spending more than we have and haven’t a dime to spare. We’ve been taught to believe processed foods can be healthy, While fresh foods...
Ignorance allied with power is the most ferocious enemy justice can have– James Baldwin
