I Left My Wallet in Tulsa. OK?

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Movies, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on May 31, 2021 at 3:15 am

Yes. It happened in Oklahoma and No. Nothing has been resolved to be “okay.”
The 1921 bombing of Black Wall Street is partly responsible for the wealth gap today.

What happened in OK was not okay.
Century-year-old children go to Congress to have their say.

Alas, they are allowed to speak in the year 2021.
A 100-year old national ignorance sum.

Ms. Viola Fletcher was only 7 when the America looked the other way
as racial hate reigned fire on Black Americans in Tulsa, OK.

To my white family members who honestly thought
that the poverty in my community was not forced-upon & taught…

Please think again.
The United States governance has not ever been
the Black community’s friend.
They kidnapped my ancestors as a means to capital ends.

The shades are once again drawn – will the US make amends?
To continue to ignore what is in the light-of-day is a damnation sin.

Do no start me on a historical Griot binge.
the way that I verse… folks will come unhinged. 

The pain does not evaporate should some choose to bear & grin.
Each one of us is mortal and will see our Creator in the end. 

On that day when you are judged
will your “life’s walk” be rebuked by God or hugged? 

Did you do what was right or did you sorta kind-of nudge?
Are you living a life of honesty and is every man (regardless of race) by YOU loved?

Every mans truths? Transparently, I really do not know.
Though I am certain that I’m living among some very ignorant souls.

Whoa! Don’t hate the messenger but do examine the contents herein,

I’m Qui

and my family name links back to my great grandma’s Oklahoma kin.

To think that “WE HAVE NOT
regardless of the educations we have bought —

because of the color of our skin.
God bless man according to the shoes that he is in.

Dear US Governance: Make things right and allow the healing to begin.

Please return to our families their lawfully earned ends
starting with the ones that in 1921 were singed and then

Fire Flames by Giphy

When I come-up on new information or get a footing to a new understanding and comprehension, I usually respond emphatically, “That’s some FIRE!” This week has presented me with some necessary degrees of fire. 

Our Multimedia Producer, EYIDA has been taking pole dancing classes. A recent visit to our hub office included installing a pole in the center of the lobby. It’s a little corporate unorthodox, but then again, we are hardly “corporate.” We leave all orthodox protocol to our corporate suite neighbors; they appreciate it more.

Once we removed the floor-to-ceiling drop cloth curtains in our publishing lobby, it became a stopping point for pedestrian traffic. Pole exercise is #NoPussy workout. I am 5’3, 157 lbs and am considered to have a natural athletic build. Honey, I am here to tell you that pole workouts are for #Heroes. Period.

When was the last time that you visited a strip club?  A display of art and sport; a showcase of skill to be dug:

ASHLEY FOX is inspiration in my poling nation. I mean, WOW! Pole dancing is exciting and often exotic. Ashely is an exceptional athlete with awesome teaching capabilities, so if you are interested in learning more about this sport, I suggest dropping in on her studio: Foxy Fitness and Pole.  I found her digital storefront during a search for upper body strength workouts and learned that Foxy Fitness and Pole is full of online and offline class capacity. Climb-up to the challenge and enroll.

Eyida (Eye-eat-eh) is 20-something and has very little time for an un-fit life. It was her idea to install a pole in the lobby for her afternoon workouts. How could I refuse? Her biological vehicle is quite inspiring:

She obviously likes “long walks on the beach,” but all I have is a 2-story studio with a lobby and a pole. Eyida walks to work every morning and produces multimedia for us, as if it is a day at the beach. Her work is definitely her play and her work ethic is contagious. There are only a few of us in the hub-office and all of us are juicing for lunch. I call this peer pressure and Eyida is not shy about it. She  is a Culturally Authentic [CA] Aristocrat.

Keep your eyes on Eyida,
she dubs as my daughter, and I, as Queen Sheba. 

Today we will be incorporating pole into our fitness fire!
MMJ is known to lift but pole fitness gets you higher.

It’s Hump Day baby, and I love talking to you.
What on Sam’s hill will you be getting into?

We will be pole climbing and testing our upper body strength.
We are paying it towards core fitness – not dancing for the rent. 

The ladies who helm best; mastering pole dancing
 calculate skill capacity. Their risk is no chancing.

I’m a fan of such ladies, and yes I frequent the clubs.
I’m that chick with dollar bills near her tits, frequently tossing them up.

I’m usually masked-up and gloved.
Because I’m still OCD in the club.

Today is Hump Day and I’m past ready to climb it,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Where’s your FIRE? Find it & mine it.

To workout is good for the body & soul.
You can hit the free weights or you can hit the pole.

See ya’ in the lobby. 

Watch a STALLION do it.

Feeling Good

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on May 17, 2021 at 3:33 am


“‘Feeling good,” is what I said
and thank God for the D-skills in bed.

After reading 12-Ways to Decompress,
I will not ever go to bed tightened or stressed.

This morning I arose refreshed after a good nights rest.
I fell into REM sleep early and passed the 8-hour test.

Yes! I am a fan of bed  & dream entertainment.
Dreams are vivid; I research the good and claim them.

How will your day let out and/or hem, per se?
Shall you make this a Monday of all work, or whilst thou play?

I pray that you do both and do them both swiftly.
Got none last night or this morn? Capitalize at lunch – quickly.

Eat your vegetable, peas, textured things, and all entree’d parts in between.
Inject in your day copious amounts of play; be responsible, and keep it clean.

“‘Feeling good,” is what I said.
I do declare that I am good in bed.

I’ll set lunch and dinner, much like the same.
I’m Qui
and A’Good-Time is my preferred surname. 😛

The fact that we don’t feel good often enough is a real dry shame.
Now whisper in their ear your secret-pet name.

Let’s get it started. It’s


Be hard @ work. Be hard @ play.
