Gargoyle’17 Dance Hall

Smiling faces crackled onto peeling Kodak paper.  Used up soft offers given as shouldered burdens by anti-ableist illiterate nonmakers.  Take her gum wrapped present in hand.  Holding that sucked 20 years from bubbling on any bed in a scheduled municipal demolition day.  Nana’s Republic is into main street bell ringing all the way from here until Dad shows me I am.  Huh, whatcha thinking?  That’s low for a shopper like you.  Artists make it from bottom to top.  My goodness! I don’t know, summer is right near 2018.


Jane Austen’s Coast

Snapping masks and long unbridled tales beneath a short stance, and here they come.  Why enter?  Questioning could malign a more traveled persona.  I believe he uses shake musk after I trim his beard.

The hair.

Torque the engine.  Management is on the scene.

Bare chips?  Her fevered spice is an illness justly deserving my kind.


How’s June?


Watched Rebecca for a bit.  Danni roams in black cloth, screening others while phoning her own legacy for future people.  In time.  Local wars transfer women to the unmapped King.

Winged thickets purple sky tearing planets until news of love adopt the pairings.

Forgetting promises.   They go.

Please remember Ma’am, I will always walk holding your ribbons.

Clawed privileges turn round the mercury door for you.  Let’s zoo the keeper and play in today.

Royal Guard by MamiesShosho

Diamonds clear burn the suns view and she’s off to 5th Avenue, shopping.

Hide green under sofas at the neighbor’s.

Still yet, we should say the mall has relocated to Jupiter.

I don’t know if she understands our directions.

Well, look at how she allows the moon to stalk her windows without shades up or down.

That star dweller is using birds to leave tweets, hinting about the latest jewels.

How can I live without her day long interference within my timing?

Please, keep me posted.

She didn’t buy that at Harry Winston’s.

What comes over that girl?  Greedley orders chicken double dipped just when the Marsalis Family gathers Night Fever.

Don’t allow her to sit for any amount of time.

Sticky sweet tea and chocolate cake covers the new upholstery and seconds freshly lick plates crowding the back two rows.

Theatre rats want everything.  Do you see how they parked Lady Liberty in the Hudson?  She will not place one toe on Manhattan until every person there can earn very good food beyond paper plated grease without door service.

Tribeca Beauty

Mad writer in the place.

Look, the owner’s hat is on me when youth emerges — lights, action, fashion!

You are beautiful in MATT BERNSON | Tribeca.  

Pencil in opportunity next.  


Delicious desires

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. and New York City, Thank you! Love Kimberly

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

Harlem Gems

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.
