BOUNCIN BACK

Michael Towers is a Virgo. Michael Towers is Mystikal.

I’m Bouncin’ Back like a Virgo named Mystikal –
I got these folks thinking I’m twisted, y’all.

My mind works differently; I’m a Writer and a Scientist.
I’m coy with none, intellect is up like the sun,
I’m regal but don’t call me highness.

I’m just one WHO’s loosely jamming a few vibes.
I’m crazy about them Virgo’s – I’m crazy about Fab5

But you already knew that.
I am a tight network, close-to-vest kind of cat.

Here we are at another Saturday morn.
The Fall is upon us and Summer is shorn. 

The day is new and more purpose is born.
Rest up, spend silk and the occasional yarn.

The successes of this life involve charm; do you have it?
Use it like Megan Thee Stallion and be savage.

I know what you’re thinking, “Qui, you want me be savage like M.Thee?”
Yes, young grasshopper. I do indeed.

Life is too short for you not to be passionate about it.
Find your niche, call it your bullhorn and shout it.

I’ve got two; I Double Up like Nipsey Hussle.
The mind is a beautiful thing; I like to flex a lil’ muscle.

What are you onto today? Did you win yesterday?
Whether you did or not Bounce Back today with a dope play.

Throw a Hail Mary, go the distance of yards, facilitate and/or reap a touchdown.
Do like Dallas Cowboys Michael Parson and Tony Pollard; skill clown.

Utilize your capacity with precision in every single scene.
Assure all colleagues and co-stars that you exist for “teams.”

Not just one team, but many.
When it comes to purposes that count, I seek out plenty.

Today I’m seeking you out because I simply want to play.
Meet me at the skating rink – let’s chop-it-up & social relay.

Are you down to skill clown
or are you closer to hitting the ground? 

Me? I’m in the latter.
Years ago, I was smoother and faster. 

That is not the case to day
But hey, like I said today I just want to play. 

So what do you say? Let’s make a couple of rink rounds and if we find ourselves on “the flat” –
worry not I’ll be right there with ya’ and I’m quick on the Bouncin’ Back.

Good morning Goodness and welcome to the day, already.
I’ve been up since 3 thinking about thee, I’m so “into you,” steady.

Here’s a drink to curb your edge tonight; I’ll play the role of Becky.
Let’s engage in a game of “Percale Chess;” tonight you can ‘check me.’

Come closer and affect me. By all means be effective.
I am Queen. You are 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; a powerful “we.”

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

Shakespeare, Langston, Paul Dunbar, and Dr. Seuss
would be proud of the round of my hanging fruit.

A connection with me, makes you an avid 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 do chuck much. I’m a southern girl.  It’s understood.

This Friday’s chuck, by all accounts is 100% Grade A.
I’m Qui
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 commit to being grown.
I’m so very glad that you are home.

I am a Girl WHO

I am a girl who likes to read.
Words on pages are blockbusters to me.

I see story vividly within the confines of of a good bind.
I’m into action, fiction, drama for-your-momma, and history referenced finds.

I’m a hard nerd and I really didn’t know it.
Just recently a friend held a mirror to my face, and it did show it.

Now, I know it and I’m embarrassed that I never knew to “what degree.”
An over achiever who compared a Science Degree program to Six Flags, is me.

I kind of thought everyone vegged out on learning.
I spent my formative years seriously yearning

for what’s next.
If you said, “a thing was hard,” I was trying to chin-check.

Not much has changed, but now I know,
that I’m a girl who enjoys winning a challenge, yo.

I do. I enjoy a game of reach.
I like to chat-it-up but won’t say a word at the table of knowledge-rich teach.

I prefer to listen and lobe glisten.

I’m a girl who loves the morning, one who can’t wait to get up.
Peering through the window with eyes aglow I beck for the sun to come up.

It’s true.
Then I open my laptop and Griot with you.

How are you, beloved, do express your vantage view today?
What are your productive plans and is there room for play?

I’m all about the learn & the play.
We can start with footsies and end at A.I. relay.

What do you say?

Let gamifaction lead the way,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, Hump Day was made for inquisition & slay.

I am a girl who loves both, it’s true.
But not nearly as much as I
