Its KEY

Dear Monday

I’d like to tell you a few things about me:
I like mystery, mystique and suspense — these are¬†key.

Black Friday required NO MELANIN darkening to #ComeUp on a good buy. ūüėÄ

I like the chase and the conquer then back to the chase.
I like it straight in my face, to the head – no chafe.

Life is stronger than any fermentation you could ever sip
Good Morning Dear Monday – let the goodness of your hours rip.

I don’t mind if it beats to the tune of my favorite Blues melody,
as long as the sharp spikes of lyrics on a linear are steamy and chique.

Unpredictable like me — unrelenting as a sapeosexual-she, Dear Monday,
take any existing mundane and toss it in as fuel for a more productive fun day.

After all, it’s CYBER MONDAY¬†already, because we obviously didn’t get out all of our pay
when we set out to spend or to pretend on the weekend of Black Friday.

Yay! You can still catch that sell and give your bank balance hell, if that is your intent.
But me? I’ve done my part. I went out on Saturday and my $240 was spent. ūüėÄ

You’d be pleased to know that within that price – and I boast
are workout gear to carry me through the new year and 2 DALLAS COWBOYS coats.

Yes thermal-lined COATS! Not jackets! Black Friday was certainly a sport.
AZ is hot so I’ll wear these when next I visit cold heart-thumbnailNew York.

Coats + electric fireplace = a Happy Qui!!  Coat Model = CupcakeChique

I’ll wear my coats when next I visit heart-thumbnailDallas.
At which time I’ll drop back in on “Jerry’s palace.”

Have you been to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX? It’s beautiful, good Lord.
Any game this season is a good visiting reason – Dak and DEM BOYS are Going HARD!

Dear Monday, I’m really on fire because, (well I’ll say it again)
on Thanksgiving, the Redskins were giving and THE COWBOYS took another WIN!!

I missed you this weekend — I cozied up by the fireplace
that is on my wall, an electronic install, perfect for a condo space.

Not to mention that my electronic fireplace yields me an option to see fire with no heat.
This little product is a direct come up from good ol’ Black Friday 2013.

My #ScriptWriting game has been crazy. I’m a major drama inventor.
I’m binding concepts of situations – yet, to¬†soon¬†share with my reel mentor.

Do you ever do that? Hoard eggs that could possibly embolden?
Well I’m over here “egg-laying,” fam – and I think quite a few are golden.

Fee-Fi-Fo-Fun!
I smell a journey of adventurous sums.

What have you got up today?
If you see me on the to and fro – tilt me ‘a nod’ or a “Hey-ey!

I’ll speak back if I don’t speak to you first.
You should respond to let me know that I my shout-out was heard.

You wouldn’t believe how many people do not speak back.

Nonsense. Bump that. I’m smiling at you at the next stop light.
I’m Qui
Dear Monday, I’m digging you baby; I’m juicing with writes…

and I love it. Muah!

BLACK Like ME

Yesterday was filled with family and friends —
and for the first time in my life I ate Thanksgiving Dinner¬†and didn’t sin.

Hallelujah and Amen.
I got down on that cornish hen

then the chicken, then the steak.
I fixed a supple 500 calorie plate.

I didn’t eat it all, but I cleared out all veggies.
I ate smart, I ate clean – I aim not to get hefty.qui-thanksgiving-2015

Or should I say “heftier?” No sir, I’ve no interest.
I’m in search of a smaller size, a much fitter mistress.

And so yesterday was an awesome THANKSGIVING and today I wake up to see
every consumer in the world is feeling beautiful and BLACK like ME.

Ooo wee. Fridays are my favorite day and the day after Thanksgiving rocks.
I’m Qui
with open arms, inviting you to be like me. I’m BLACK, it’s Friday and it’s time to SHOP.

Keep making the thankful moments with fam and friends.
Have fun out there shopping – don’t spend all of your ends.

BLACK Friday is a lot Like ME.
fun-grn-blkbkXO!!

Getting Back To It

The Grind

Photo Flipbook Slideshow Maker

So tomorrow is THANKSGIVING DAY 
so thankful for life, I am yielding to pray.

I’m sitting here in Chandler, on this Wednesday¬†Morning
thinking about the tone that¬†we’re forecasting for future dawning¬†.

I am an involved parent, who likes to be all-up-in-it.
I chauffeur to and from school, everyday: 80-minutes.

Conversation in the car has been thick
I’ve no “dancing around the obvious” tricks.

My kid is 17 and I heard the pain in her throat
when she said, “America! What’s wrong? I can’t wait to vote!”

She’s ON IT. She’s awake. I prayed for a graceful awakening.
Seems the generation before hers is¬†down for some ‘earth shaking.’

They see the injustice and while they love Dr. Martin Luther King
They believe in being incessantly pushy to change a wrong thing.

I love them and I love you, America. I love the good intent of our system.
To act like an injustice is not going on is to be dismissive and consequent wishin’.

I pray no violence breaks out and no lives are lost in the face of this struggle.
I can’t believe you can’t feel my pain. Come on. Bring it in. I’m a big hugga’.

My kid is concerned about what she’s going to have to face tomorrow, beyond the high school doors.
I’m melancholy that she’s awake. Hurt that I can’t protect her, anymore, from the worlds unbalanced scores.

She’s a black kid, and I am a black mother.
I raised her to love all. We’re LIFE LOVERS.

I do what I’ve got to do and now, I’m fixed on my grind – talking to you.
I’ve got some positive routes that I’m going to have to hip her to.
Oooo!
This is a journey. I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do.
I’m praying for the situation. I’m praying for¬†you.

I’m praying for me. I’ve got somethings to deal with.
It’s Hump Day baby, and I’m Getting Back To It!

I’m happy that I have this avenue to vent what doth pierce my heart,
I’m Qui
Happy to be linked to thee. I bid you peace, love and a positive spark!

Good Customer Service

Black-Friday

Black Friday is on its way,
and your bank balance includes holiday pay!

It’s on now!
Macy’s is about see you clown now!

I ain’t mad at you. Retail therapy can be so good it can make you holla,
so more power to ya sister and brother – just spend wisely, that dollar.

Just don’t be so quick to patronize
those who despise

your very brown existence
following you around the store ‘thief wishin.’

I’m not saying Macy’s is that kind of joint,
but your dollar has weight… and that is my point.

Have fun on Black Friday, consuming those sales.
If shopkeepers don’t make you feel welcomed, exit the store like, “Oh well.

Take your weighty dollars and bail.
I’m sure, up the way, there’s an all encompassing sale.

Pay attention to #Marketing & #CustomerService

THINK

No sooner than a black president is put into office
racism kicks up and hails #1 divisive topic.

Please keep in mind, Trayvon and Mike are two very recent reasons
why blacks feel like this is quite the nasty season.

Airing It Out

TOGETHERness Unity

WE can do better. FEEL for ME like I FEEL for YOU.

Come on. We have to talk about it sometimes. Don’t let those riling up bad times be¬†the only ones able to rile. It’s time to stand together and say enough is enough. A shift in police power in a negative light may be your neighbors concern today, but by the looks of things, the lack of compassion and in some cases ‘the condoning of’ such behavior will indeed be your problem tomorrow. Then what? You’re going to want me to be outraged and march about it? Guess what? I probably will. Because I care about how you feel. Do you care for me as much?

I’m obviously worried about¬†the state of my country;
I don’t care¬†what others think, our current feel is foul and funky.

I’m worried about race relations and the message we’re sending to the youth.
I’m worried¬†that we told them this was a “post racial era,” when we knew that¬†wasn’t true.

I never bought into that anyway. If you’re a minority, everything but post racism rules the day,
I’m Qui
Not surprised about the Ferguson ruling. Historical nastiness continues to play.

No need for you to personally get hurt just to feel my pain.
Unite with me today and let’s¬†tourniquet this bleeding vein.

PS… Judging by the lay of topics in view,
I’d have to say this is definitely a NEWS PERUSE.

You have been served. ūüôā
