Totchos finally lured me out of bed...
Last night was amazing
I learned somethings and got humbled by others

My Lyft driver looked at me and asked me if I was a performer. She asked me to sing for her and I did. She cut me off sharply to ask me how much I was being paid when I told her she threatened to kick me out of her car for clearly neither loving nor respecting myself.

She then spent the next ten minutes schooling the fuck out of me on SAG and AFTRA, booking agents, managers etc.
She schooled me on being professional while saying fuck you. She told me the clubs I need to be going to get seen and heard and network.

She told me my worth.

Turns out she's driving Lyft to alleviate her boredom and pay for travel abroad.

I can't do three shows in one night
3 shows in 6 hours
By the middle of my song last night I was so wide open that between the music, the crowd, the corset, the anxiety of singing a new song in a new style and Nate James being made of pure awesome my legs wanted to give way and I had to choose between standing or continuing to sing.

So I let myself fall and dig into the ground to reach those notes. The desperation of Sally's love for Jack and my desperation to make it through as an equal performance match for Nate became inseparable.

And we did it.
It was great.

But that was real pain on my face at the end...I'm not indestructible.

I know where my wall is
And this time instead of trying to push it out further out of some need to prove to myself I am enough that I can do everything
I'm going to back the fuck up off it

I want to burn bright
not out.

While packing my drag bag for this epic weekend Im grateful for how much love is contained within.

Thank you @vixenland for creating the amazeballs jacket for a duet with the incomparable @theofficialnatejames and helping me design and wrangle 80 yards to tulle into a ball gown. Thank you to @berthapearlsizequeen for dress of gilded sunlight and a jacket of crimson flame. Thank you to @leigh.crow for adding the finishing touches to my corset and making sure Ruby and I actually ate food instead of wasting away under machines. Thank you to @dahlia_kash who was like nah you got this.

I've lost time staring at walls and crying because my brain stopped working but y'all were in it with me.
You didn't have to.

You're all with me tonight and tomorrow (literally because sewing equals sacrificial blood)and I'm going to be okay... whatever happens it's going to be great.

I'm not terrified of tonight because I'm wrapped up in your love.

See you

Since insomnia has given me extra time I decided to plan my Black History Month 2018 in advance because virgooooooo
While perusing YouTube for peek blackness inspo I ran across the 2016 halftime show.

Y'all remember 2016
Those moments where we could still plausibly deny being in the darkest time line? I watched that halftime show three times and cried
because humanityyyyyyyyyy
But as I looked online for freeze frames of Chris Martin cheesing so hard on Bey and Burno for my sweetness and honey altar (get you someone who looks at you the way Chris looks at Bey and Bruno) I ran across this.

I require resuscitation.

I kept telling your daddy that you weren't a total asshole. I knew Bowler instigated hella shit when he wasn't looking.

You were totes a follower

So why is it still a bit surprising that you followed him again so soon

You were always first at the door when I got home meowing through the screen

You were a clingy thing literally hiding under my skirts

You infiltrated every date by squeezing between us on the couch

You wedged yourself in at night even the hot ones

You were the first cat I met who drooled when happy. My shoulder was constantly covered in subtle abrasions and spit.

No matter how much you pretended to love me more you'd cry for 15 minutes every morning when he left for work.

You would claw at the books on the shelf to wake us up in the middle of the goddamn night. You'd wreck the spines and that made you a spawn of satan

But you were our spawn of satan

I identified with you because you were always hungry, you were always happy but never satisfied, you always wanted more and you gave so so so much.

There were moments when your daddy and I were sad. We didn't even know it yet. Something had happened and the impact hadn't hit yet

In that space

The space between confusion and sorrow

You'd be there

In our laps purring
Waiting for the tears to come

You'd catch them in your fur

Press paws into our legs

Kneed to soothe

Need to soothe

This hurts so much

We thank you Grady

We love you

We owe you

We miss you

3 Vesper
When I moved into the Big Blue Haus all the cats welcomed me by spending the night in my bed. Except for Sam Cat. He sat on my chair and did a creepy stare thing that had me constantly looking over my shoulder for noncorpal unsolids.
He spent a few weeks opening my door only to stare at me from the threshold. I would watch him fall asleep sitting up trying to stare at me. If I said "OMG what the hell cat" he'd just meow at me like "OMG what the hell human"

I'd come home after trips to find him posted outside of my door like I put him out him by being away. When I reached to pet him he'd sidestep meow as if to say ewwwwww don't me and run away.

A few nights ago I did one of those things where I had an edible and forgot I had an edible and had another one. I was so high that those on the other side of the thining veil were like "Heyyyyyyyyy gurl I'm about to come thru! Fix me and my cousins a plate!" My door kept coming open and both ears blocked up. I was annoyed and at my wits end because the normal techniques of enforcing my energetic boundary was not working.
Not enough mana, too much marijuana.

The door swung open again.
I sat up ready to get the sulfur and banish some bitches but Sam jumped on my bed like he owned it which was a first. He laid at my feet and stared out into the room. His head flicking from side to side. The room got quiet and I fell asleep with him standing sentient.

So today as I set about reorganizing the altar space it makes sense that he popped in

to judge me.

I'm glad he approves!

Woke up fore day in da mornin to be at the beach for Maafa. My heart broke open as I buried rose petals of forgiveness and screamed into the sand.
I don't have many words
But I have so much gratitude
I am at this moment surrounded by black conjure women who work roots
women who lead lost one to the dark well of our mighty dead
women whose fingers pluck medicines from the earth
our blood is humming with the songs they tried to beat, steal and rape from our souls

We keep moving forward
We fall
We rise
We keep moving forward
And just like the waves that delivered the stolen bodies of our ancestors to this shore
We shall overcome
