Naked on the Continent

Ten years ago, on a Sunday morning that I will never forget, my cell phone started buzzing. It was about 8 in the morning. I was laying in bed with D. In another woman’s apartment. A woman that he is married to now actually and has a brand new baby with, but that’s another story…

InstaCreep

Yesterday I opened up Instagram and I had 17 likes and comments. I didn’t remember what I posted that could have been so interesting so I hit the notifications icon and THIS is what I saw: Sir. First of all, who are you? Number 2, who sent you? And C, STOP! Of course, I screenshot…

This is Us: #demCovingtongirls

If y’all don’t know how crazy my family is… here’s the story: I was ASLEEP at 12:15 am on a Monday night. the phone rings. it’s sister number 3, Autumn. So I answer SLEEPILY. she says, “awww I’m sorry. how long you been asleep? are you really sleep?” me: yes I’m asleep what’s up? I…

The Letters : Want

I wanted you. I wanted you to be mine. but you never were. you were late night laughter and early morning banter. you were teeth and tongue and lips and eyes. you were lazy stretches and long languid looks across the room. you were my motivation and my muse. my homeboy and my future husband….

Frayed

That thread she hardly hung on by? Yes, that’s the same one she used to sew herself back together again. Judge your perfection by someone else’s standards? She doesn’t need to. She owns every bump, bruise, misstep and shady dealing. Ask her. She’ll tell you. Hell, she’s practically an open book. She has her demons…

The Sex (Corinne and James)

Corinne and James have been friends for nearly 10 years. That’s not quite the whole truth. Corinne and James met nearly 10 years ago on a dating site. That’s kind of a lie too. Corrine and James met nearly 10 years ago on a site dedicated to facilitating “flings”. A hook-up site. For the sex….

Pride and Prejudice 

This man just sent me a pic of myself that he has had in his possession digitally since 1997-98.  Talmbout “I still have a thing for you.” Boo Boo imma need you to have a THING for yourself. It’s called “Pride.” Have you heard of it?  Mind you he found me on Instagram. We may…

Retrograde

(i’m in the process of migrating posts over from my more risque blog and merging that writing into my current incarnation) I don’t know if Mercury is in retrograde or Venus has a heavy influence in my chart… But I happened upon a former “I don’t know what to call him” pics on Facebook. And…

freestyle 7/26

  sometimes, just sometimes the night encompasses me and I find myself recounting moments in my head that I was certain my heart had forgotten I remember the sound of your laughter Or hear the tone of your voice in the quiet the memory of the way you looked at me or how comforted I…

Flip This House!

i just want to run away. or send them to live somewhere with monks or ex-military types that will wake them up in the middle of the night to scrub toilets and baseboards with toothbrushes and the like. i don’t want to mommy right now.
