I wrote this piece over the course of two days. By day 3, I had it memorized. By day 4, I was performing it. People loved it. It made them moan. It made them gush. It made them believe in magic again. It was a surprise to me as well, this sudden unleashing of passion. This piece made me change my plans. I became a spoken word artist, not just a poet.

Inconvenient Emotions is the first track from my upcoming album, Bursting Into Art. That name perfectly describes what happened to me. After years of healing the wounds of childhood trauma and addiction with self-love and spirituality, I came full circle, returned to the passion in my veins that makes me a human being, a woman, an artist.

I am releasing Bursting Into Art slowly, track by track. You can donate to this project via BandCamp or PayPal if you’d like to support it.

After I released Inconvenient Emotions, I got a lot of emails and messages asking, “What happened between you and Jamie?” Change of Plans is an attempt to answer that question. It’s track 2 off my upcoming spoken word album, Bursting Into Art.

This is the only spoken word piece I’ve written about that relationship so far. There’s more to say. But this piece nicely captures what I did say when I left that 7-year relationship.

Thanks in advance for listening, sharing, and being on this ride with me. I can’t ask for a greater gift than your attention 💚
