Sheeba's Old View from the Window

What happened? What's happening. Sheeba's view from the window. Mine, on occasion, from wherever. Yours, from ... where.......?

Samiya Bashir’s books of poetry, Field Theories (Spring 2017), Gospel, andWhere the Apple Falls, and anthologies, including Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social & Political Black Literature & Art, exist. Sometimes she makes poems of dirt. Sometimes zeros and ones. Sometimes variously rendered text. Sometimes light. She lives in Portland, Ore, with a magic cat who shares her obsessions with trees and blackbirds and occasionally crashes her classes and poetry salons at Reed College.

Obama -- the next truly great American president? Purrr....

See, what'd I say. Now I'm no lover of Clinton, but his speech was good.

And then there was OBAMA. I've been reading about him as much as I can sneak into the feeder's laptop for news and views for the last couple of years. But having the chance to watch him live last night, and then again once I pawed the remote to rewind, and then three more times on MSN Video (check it out if you missed it) ... and yeah. I may leave the feeder here, move to Chicago (cuz I hate DC) and go work for this guy instead.

Yo Obama ... does your America have a space for a Tabby w/ an attitude?!
