Good evening and welcome home, already.
I get lonely without you; I’m so solo-steady.

Here’s a drink to curb your edge; tonight, call me Becky.
Let’s play a game of “Percale Chess;” tonight you can ‘check me.’

Come on and affect me. By all means be effective.
I’m Queen, you’re King.  Let’s intertwine our collective.

Connecting dots of intentional deeds,
drawing lines and reaping seeds.
Your majestic vision supersedes the weeds.
Thrive in the moment of you and me.

Who, me? You know my spin.
I’m categorized in the “Writers” bin.

Shakespeare, Langston, Paul Dunbar, and Dr. Seuss
nourished my poetic roots; thus, I bear a similar fruit.

A connection with me, means that you’re a reader

of grown content… and that’s good.
because I’m all about the water the wood.

How much wood could a wood-chuck chuck if a wood-chuck could chuck wood?
My name ain’t Chuck but I chuck much. I’m a southern girl.  It’s understood.

This Friday’s chuck, by all accounts is 100% Grade A.

flirting with thee, via a little tongue & cheek Grown Folks word play.

I pray thee tell me, how was your earning day?
Lean in close and whisper how you wielded a slay.
I root for you daily; Yasss Bae. Hooray!”

Now, put down the telephone –
and commitment to being grown.
I’m so very glad that you’re home.

Thoughts-last-nights-debate.png
I had to think on it a while – pardon my expressive delay.

I enjoyed the CNN broadcast last night
and I think Sen. Warren did alright.

There were no hot topics that were cooled to the core,
and Sen. Warren did a great job at being honest and not sore.

Question_prompt
How many times has someone said something hurtful to you with no witnesses nearby;
tho when the tale was retold, that person chose to lie and deny?

Good people say foul stuff all of the time,
and a good handshake is not an appropriate response in-kind.

At the end of the debate Sen. Warren approached Sen. Sanders (they’re friends but not the best),
so when he extended his hand to shake her’s she clasped her fingers and drew them into  her chest.

Sen. Warren began to speak; though no audio was shared with us.
Tom Steyer approached the two in talks and his face looked like “hush.”

You know?
Tom’s smile turned into an “Uh-oh.”

Who knows what Sen. Sanders and Warren were saying?
Men devaluing women isn’t a joke and Warren isn’t playing.

Why on Earth would she handshake with a friend to ‘his not being honest?
Instead she approached him civilly to broach the topic; friends be up-on-it.

Real friends lay it out on the line, on the floor and on the table.
Bernies ‘overlay for the underplay‘ was an unappreciated fable

that Elizabeth Warren wasn’t feeling. Folks need to learn:
A woman can be sharp and graceful, but if you cross her, there’ll be a burn.

Even during ‘said burn,’ Sen. Warren was lady-like; she did it right and to that, I salute.
Mika Brzezinski missed the mark on MORNING JOE;  Sen. Warren displayed her value.

She spoke according to her own truths.
No shade to Sen. Sanders, tho, I bid him adieu.

Other than that, the debate was a smooth ride,

Yes-yes! Good morning, good morning. Wake-up sleepy head.
This day requires reel — no lounging in bed.

You heard what I’ve said so, let’s go.
The sun will meet us on location, yo.

Today is SHOOT DAY 1 of the AUTO SAFETY PSA.
I am up to claim scenes per the script’s relay.

What about you? I’m duly charting an 8-hour filming day.
Though I must admit, we may finish quick; pre-planning yields me a slay.

And so today is MONDAY FUNDAY. I need no jo’ right now.
I’m bright-eyed and bushy tailed on 6-hours sleep…anyhow,

Monday

FUNDAY.

I’m up and ready to go.
So what’s that you’re getting into, yo?

May I suggest your start out the week
the way you want it to play out (i.e., productive, smooth, and sweet)?

Up-up-up! Get up on your feet.
Today you lead the band; they march to your beat.

May it be one of fresh creativity
because you planned-out over a few weeks.

WE got this. You and I are so much like.
Monday’s are easy – like riding a bike.

You can’t forget how.
Show and prove time is NOW.

Are you awake? I surely am and with a Chester-cheesy smile,
I’m Qui
Up to film the day, it’s a Journey; I’m charting the miles…
