I’m Grace Jones, Bitch!

Grace Jones

Playlist: I Get Lifted- Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa

“It’s witching time!”

Open your doors and windows
Let the air flow freely through the entirety of your sacred space
Light a candle and place it on your kitchen window
As a signal to your ascended masters that it’s time to send your guides through
Light some incense sticks, one for every room,
using the fire from the candle in your kitchen

Make a broth
500 grams of cow heart
One large piece of ginger, minced
One large garlic bulb
One bunch of fresh kale
Thyme, basil.. 
Let your gut lead you here

Slow cook this motherfucker
Four hours minimum
The angel number four is a sign that your guardian angels are ready to hold you up
And give you strength

Actually, I’ll just give you the short version:

Cow heart
Mnazi x jaba juice x red wine
A smirnoff surprise
The new moon
Soak up the breeze
Smoke up some trees

The moon
The stars
The dark sky
Pitch black silence

The power of three
An un-holy trinity
All fucks left behind

Frogs, crabs

Playlist: A Comma- Serpentwithfeet

Life is one beautiful tragedy
A total mind fuck
They tried to stamp out my voice
They didn’t know better either
Their ignorance is my skeleton to exorcise
For everyone with scars from home
That cut so deep
But the person holding the knife
Is the first person you ever loved
Don’t they love you too?

For everyone who is confused by the hurt
And the rage
And the feelings of betrayal
Mixed with love
And an aching need to be loved
These fucking scars from home

We can be strong tomorrow
Today, here and now
Let’s share in a collective despondency
A moment to soothe our heavy hearts together
To acknowledge the war zones we grew up in
To acknowledge how fucked up it is that

The wounds that are hardest to heal
Are not because of our doing
That part of this mind fuck that is life
Scars from home?

That shit is fucked up.

Playlist: You Can Put It In A Zag- Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa

Took the skeletons out
Polished them
Shone a light on them
Those nasty kitchen fluorescent lights
And took a long hard look

And you know what?
Those skeletons?
Only scary in the dark

In the light?
I see the patriarchy in my mom
Shaking in its boots every time i do something ‘ungovernable’
I see how my sperm donor is trapped inside ‘society’ 
And how, above all else
He wants ‘society’s approval’

And you know what?
They can put it in a zag
I’mma put it in a blunt

Playlist: Thinking Bout You- Frank Ocean

Dope, but predictable

I’m always thinkin bout forever
Forever just wasn’t it with you
Too much normal
Too much predictability
Good, but not good enough
Good, but not best life
Not sweet life

Thinkin bout you...

This song makes me think about
Reclaiming my power
Reclaiming beauty
Reclaiming space to make new memories

When a song is so good
No ex will ruin it for you

I remember powering through all those feelings
Feelings like your heart is in physical pain
Like someone needs to put you on a drip
Or do CPR or something
Because your heart feels like it could die of pain at any moment

Thinkin bout you...

This song is so beautiful
It made me want to fight to get it back
Fight for it to be my song again
Not the song that takes me somewhere sad and ugly

Eventually, I broke through
My heart doesn’t crumple in the worst pain ever anymore when I hear this song

My heart swells in anticipation
And my mind captures the present moment 
And saves that as a new memory
And my soul sits back to wallow in this new perfect moment

I deserve beauty
I deserve new memories

#mood4eva: I’M GRACE JONES, BITCH!
Playlist: a woman is a god- Tommy Genesis

Allow me to re-introduce myself,
(In Olivia Pope to Annalise Keating voice, if you know you know)

I am Naba the Fucking Goddess
One of the chosen few
With the capacity to look out for the rest of humanity
forever bae <3,
alicia keys)

Frequent bursts of hyper-sexuality
Expressed through sex and art

Future lesbian
(almost cured of men)


Anti-everything that is imposed on us
We don't all function the same
Count me out of the mass-production fuckery
Here to burn down the entire establishment

Anarchy, now.

I'm fucking celestial!
When you see the moon, the stars, the sky and the ocean...
and you pause in awe?
See ME and pause in awe

Me, I am god
I believe in me

What else?

I'm Grace Jones bitch!
I take up space
Guided by the beat of my own drum
Sounds about,

"I am Naba the Great,
Borne from the ashes of legends,
I am the manifestation of the revolution
Respect me,
Or fear me
