Nothing Going On But the Rent

Hey Wordsmiths! What a long mundane week! Better than chaotic and out of control, but still, bluh.

That’s okay though. Sometimes we need the lulls to make the highs stand out. And I’ll take weekend chores over a 7-day work week every time (because I have worked 7-days a week before and that shit should be illegal). 🧹 🧼 🧽

I can hardly remember what took place this week. I remember going to work and coming home and that’s it. I started a new WIP and have been working on that in the evenings. I played around with making videos and reading poems on camera and I still feel very much like a fish out of water. The tech, my voice, my FACE🙄…LOL Talk about stepping out of a comfort zone, more like leaping. 🤾🏾‍♀️

I’m about to go to the store to nab groceries and cat supplies. Once I’m back I plan to read and do some creative stuff, but a girl might just take a nap. 😴

Enjoy the weekend, friends! 💋

Impromptu Poetry Reading

Last Tuesday I hopped on the mic (in my living room) and did an impromptu reading from my soon to be released poetry collection This is Not About Love from BLF Press

I’m still new to recording and video (it’s amazing the things “smart” phones can do) but I think I did alright.

This is Ode to Joy.

Krystal A. Smith (me) reading Ode to Joy from my new collection This is Not About Love available for preorder at BLF Press. Release date 4-6-21.

It feels so good to share this poem. Even though 2020 was difficult and so much is still changing I have much to be joyful about.

I hope this piece gives you a little lift. And I hope you’ll check out my collection. Click here to preorder.
