9218 South Drexel – Girl of the Southside


9218 South Drexel. (unedited. free write.) I can’t tell you the last time I have set foot on South Drexel Avenue.  I don’t even remember much of what the house looked like. I vaguely remember a porch, the couches, the kitchen, a certain smell, and some … well, maybe, all of the rooms. My memory

Single Mothers Father’s Day or Whoa, there buddy! Your misogyny is showing!


I don’t want to alarm anyone and I ain’t one to gossip so you ain’t heard it from me, BUT apparently there is a rag tag band of violently embittered, single mothers running WILD all over the world and social media engaging in an illuminati inspired bid to co-opt Father’s Day? Y’all, I’m just as SHOCKED as you.

SistaTV Daily Podcast #8. There is a difference…


A gazillion years ago, I was a poet. I wrote, read and performed poetry everywhere. I loved books and revered words and devoured them nonstop. For the bulk of my life, words have been my only constant. But one day what I thought was love knocked on my door and love told me that me

Dear 4:33, An open letter to my insomnia or How I made peace with no sleep.


Apparently, me and four o’clock in the morning, go together like peas and carrots. I keep trying to break up with him but his ass is steadily calling me, jocking me, poking me awake at 4:33 every single morning. It doesn’t matter what time I go to sleep or plan to wake up. Without a

SistaTV's Daily Gratitude List #SDGL 
1. All four of us COLLAPSED into hysterical laughter at the Arthur/kids interrupting the BBC interview meme. It tickled me so deeply that they laughed so hard.
2. When I first showed them the video of the kids interrupting the BBC interview, I was like "it's so funny cause it's just like when you guys are always interrupting me when I'm working" and they all  gave me the "???? Face" like, "Who us?? We don't knock down books and stuff"
3. I stepped exactly ZERO parts of my person out into the snow. #hesable #remote
4. No. 
5. Redeemer and Allyson calling to sing happy birthday to miss 11 year old thang. They were laughing and happy and I love them so.
 6. So we are going on trip soon. Of course, I  feel approximately 18 billion different kinds of stressed out about it. It's going to be fine.
7. Today was a rough-ish day. I'll try for less rough tomorrow. You too, ok?

SistaTV Loves you, laughing with my kids, and  deep breathing. #goodnight
Round and round... round we go. #GoodMorning
Tomorrow at church. ???
#Goodnight from a ?child ?of ?God. ? ??
