In my home, but outside all the same. Cold air sneezes and wandering children knowing warmth is just where they left it. Can comfort cuddle up by faucets running full on soured milk and penny cookies? The dogs just want a little more compassion than what is shared ordinarily. Do not watch crime shows or horror stories to the degree of muddying up tomorrow. Acting without a union card or talent is doing a job inside skirts edging through caked slime. It’s how you know when you are outside, nothing matters more than getting in.

Clearly beautiful, tomorrow is the day. Prepare for glittering paper, wrapping dreams of blue around pearl brilliant skies.

Have you visited Harlem this year?
Come for food, seeing with beautiful arms outstretched just waiting to embrace with friendly smiles and stimulating conversation. Not everyone has their name emblazoned on a building, but those that do are stalwart, heavy weights worth a flight up or down to see what all the commotion is about. The word about Harlem is and always has been to keep her beautiful. So bring your sweet self here.
Oh, and don’t be so nosy that you sneak too many peeks at the monumental family outside Harlem Hospital on Lenox. They saw you. Yeah…that was you looking at a healthy black family.
They are beautiful.
Visit twice, and then decide to remain among the good people here.

Days ache with activity needing more heat, extra push.
You may have all you wish.
Love yourself like that. Like that. Like that!
I wrote to you when I thought spare and clean could help restore a measure recognizable to one who cares. Invisible ink and tears blowing up snot in certain circles to redbrick flour lining my steps and Daddy reeled because he knew. I wrote and millers mud cake tainted boots, booked me on hot flights from that hell. I wrote on crossed knee, engines swirling sciatically inferior, but I knew. Dr. Angelou I licked greens in the forest, four years before I knew your light crackled creeks to swell heightening degrees.
Go. Do not miss anyone else.
