I absolutely loved the 2021 presentation of the INAUGURAL POEM, by Amanda Gorman. Her delivery was something-to-live-for, man.

Did you see it? She spoke life. It was so good that I watched it twice.

She is not a new phenomena, but she is rather young; 22 years is her total life sum. She is a chronicle-loving society’s yum!

Thing is, Amanda Gorman has been like this for sometime now. It’s as if Zora Neale Hurston passed-down literal architecture to this child:

Heck! She is my daughter! She spoke with convicting clarity, as if I had taught her.

Love from her community is what has ‘brought her.” Amanda is the definition of living smarter and not harder

She is todays excitement in my Griot-matic world. I’m down to give 3 pounds for the Poet Laureate brown girl.

Amanda Gorman, your words are weighted in worth. Keep up the talk, continue to walk the walk, and always pen-the-verse.

I pray prosperity finds thee and fills up your purse — or bag. Get you one like Cardi B has

The bag of success that you are crafting today — will forever be remembered in a Presidential way. 

Kudos and way to go; you are definitely kin to me

I’m Qui

A word-witty she and this composition is ‘for thee, I sing.

I love what you’re doing with the place…

And It Just Gets Better

Life. Love. Wants. Desires. The more that I marinate in season, the hotter ‘my fire. And I’m not talking about “the change.” I’m having hot flashes, but menopause ain’t his name.

Please feel me. Good love can heal thee.


I should know, I hurt my back doing laundry the other day, but percale aerobics worked that glitch out-and-away.


I am thankful for that — there were calories burned, and I arose with less fat. Oh, snap!


The news is full of gloom, so turn it off. Vaccinations are on way – please steer clear of all coughs.


In the meantime, stay inside and dimensionally work-it-out. Life is doing her thing — resist unnecessary pout. Give all issues to God; He’ll work them out. Don’t forget to ask for endurance for the percale bounce.” 


You know that I like it! Of course, I’d use a low-key Friday to invoke high feelings. Yield no energy to going-out today, instead stay-in for sexual healing


There I said it. Please tell me that you are not reading this out loud — at church, in the car with kids, or a subway in front of a crowd?


If you are doing any of that then you are quite the interesting goer. I am a woman of polls, do tell how’d the “out-loud reading” go over?


If you’re shy, you should give it a try. Read Griot aloud, like a DEF POETRY JAM vibe.


That –ish would be live and I’d listen. Let your words about reflective verbs flow and glisten. 


And It Just Gets Better; life, love, and understanding emotions — learning to love the water and swim across oceans. Life is literally a day at the beach; Do Not Drown in the motions.


If you want to kick-life-up a notch engage in meditation and daily devotion. It rocks!


I began this morning as focused as any go-getter,

I’m Qui

Life is doing her thing, unity will again ring, And It Just Gets Better.

HEART OF DARKNESS is the title of Episode 10. The end of Season 1 is where the real ghosting begins.

In episode 10 Monet killed Rico at the drop because “respect in the game rocks” as a paralleling Cane deep-dives Ramirez’s body with cement blocks. The commonality in these two crest to the top in body drops.

Professor Carrie and Jabari interview Dru’s Man-Crush. Carrie “directs his answers away from Dru and Zeke w/her eyes and gestures.’

Zeke drops in on Professor Carrie and she vows to “fix the mess,” that has his name in the mouths of students who are being interviewed in connection to the swimming pool murder.

Dru wakes up in the hospital to Cane entering his room. Cane anchors an issue with Tariq and Dru cancels it. Cane implies to Dru that he has put Ramirez “where he needs to be.” Dru called the move “dumb” and kicked him out. Cane internalizes his seethe and exists Dru’s room.

Tasha goes to court and Saxe calls Tariq to the stand for questions about the night Ghost died. DA Saxe and Attorney Maclean believe Tariq is the killer and they collaborated on a secret trap to incriminate him. But Tariq drops a dime on the witness stand about Saxe being at TRUTH with a gun the night Ghost died and for most recently for having him drugged by Riley. Maclean interrupts before Tariq could name names and calls for a side-bar and a mistrial.

The judge denies declaring a mistrial and makes new rules for the case that includes Tasha being freed from jail if she turns home Tommy E.’s org and relocates in to witness protection. Tasha takes the deal but secretly plans to run w/her entire fan because the wit-protection program only included Tasha and Yaz.

Riley tries to win over Weston as trouble closes in on her post-Tasha’s trial and Tariq’s court debut.

Zeke drops in on Tariq to inform him that authorities are looking for the GTG swimming pool incident killer.

Later on, Tariq talks to Diana and she warns him about Cane’s erratic behavior and tells him to watch his back.

Weston tells Tariq what Riley said and expressed that he doesn’t believe her. Weston entices Tariq to restart the pharmaceutical game. Tariq is considering it…

Meanwhile Tasha stops off at Monet’s recently shot-up bar to have a woman-to-Woman regarding “family.” Tasha wants to buy Tariq out of the game. Monet is busy not considering Tasha’s plea when someone in a royal blue Mustang (much like the one Tommy inherited from Ghost) did a second drive-by on the bar and killed Monet’s bodyguard.

Back at Stansfield, Tasha does not pass go without warning Tariq about Tommy and induce a family run; Tommy is a killer. But Tariq barks back, remarking that he, too is a killer. Tasha is taken aback and forced to see her son, for the man he has become; that she raised him to be. She acknowledged new respect for him, accepted the burner phone that he gave her and exited his dorm.

Monet tells Lorenzo about the shoot outs at the bar and that she’s looking for Ramirez – because he isn’t taking her calls. ‘Ren tells Monet to get a hold of Cane & get him bk in line while he orchestrated a search for Ramirez.

Monet bursts-in on Cane as he ‘put-in work behind his girlfriend. ‘Monet cock-blocks the moment further when she pulls a gun on Cane for not answering her question: “Have you heard from Ramirez?” Cane talks about Ramirez in the past tense and Monet realizes that he has off’ed her ‘Copper Boo. Like a G with a broken heart she lowered her pistol and remarked that she trusts Tariq because he cannot be trusted, then she exits Cane’s place — stage left.

DA Saxe is staked out in Tasha’s car trying to catch Tommy. Tommy crashes into a flammable guard shack and his vehicle bursts into flames. Tasha somehow didn’t seem too emotionally swayed.

Professor Jabari meets up w/Tariq in a park to give him cash to help Him escape town w/ his family but Cane surprises them both and put one in Professor Jabari, thinking Tariq was ‘ratting out his family.’ He was preparing to shoot Tariq when Eureka entered atop of Tariq’s head. He convinced Cane that killing him and the professor is stupid and that it won’t please Monet. Tariq talked Cane into giving him the gun and to vacate the scene to keep his name clean and out of “Stansfield mayhem.” Cane relinquished his piece and left the scene but not too far that he couldn’t see or hear Tariq fires off two more rounds into Professor Jabari. Satisfied, Cane exits stage right.

We CUT TO Zeke and Carrie carrying-on in her bedroom like all-is-well in Pleasantville (colored with an unbridled passion).

Maclean makes a business proposition to Saxe because the death of Tommy Eagan earned him terminations papers and plank walk for his career. Saxe accepts Maclean’s offer to join the firm. Davis is a methodical character; Method Man.

Tommy is in-the-clear but is still jonesing to kill Tasha. He told Tariq that he would leave the family alone. His intentions aren’t true and ‘Riq senses as much and proactively alerts the FBI. They move in to take Tasha to safety at the cemetery just shy of Tommy making his move. As the law drove off Tommy approached ‘Riq to choke him but Monet showed up and hit him in the back of her head with her piece. Tommy turned around to address the issue but the issue wasn’t his to address. This moment was orchestrated by ‘Riq aka Ghost Jr.

Season 1 ends with Tasha and Tommy free to live all be it in different cities and definitely not in New York. New York is a Ghost Town and Tariq is the Deputy. Viva la Queen Monet and long-reign King Lorenzo.

Family first. Now that the St. Patrick’s are safe the Tejada’s and Baby Ghost can flourish and play. Or is it prey?
