Friday - Stream of Conscioiusness
Some days not everything matches perfectly
and ideas bounce
like gum balls
when you shake
the round glass globe
from remembering my days at the Washington Women's Arts Center
as I stroll through my Second Wave past for the Second Wave Album
and preparing for performing the story at the
you know, the big things.
i catch a glimpse of my
bunk hair in the hall mirror
its a fright wig
get yourself to Images on the double
you need help
Indulging in black and white
until vintage stars and plots blur
in a gray haze.
sorry I missed
my grandmother's birthday last week week
warm, sweet Ellie Hall Keasler Baer
who said she was born on a rock poor farm in Mint Hill, NC.
but you'd never guess it when she was "done up"
wearing an elegant black dress
her pearl "ear bobs"
and little foxes chasing themselves around her neck.
From my first day
Granny laughed with me and loved me
and told me
you can do anything you set your mind to.
