a reminder

i talked to willie tonight
michaels short term memory
is short
he is constantly reminded
of the date and year
i spoke to him on the phone
after willie
it wasn't easy

i gave hazel a bath tonight
actually she showered with me
sugar goes to the groomers in the morning
it was only fair
the apartment smells of dog
and still a hint of burnt beans
from four days ago
i'm not a cook

about Wendaferd

I was born to a carpenter and an artist/activist/homemaker in Indiana, right smack-dab in the middle of the middle class and white America. I am number 7 of 8. On a really good day my mother called me Wendaferd. I am an artist and the founder of SUGAR. My photographs explain what I am thinking. The image becomes a drawing of my conclusions. Within the captured moment lie my notions and opinions about the world I live. Cropping happens in the lens, eliminating unnecessary words, while enriching others that remain within the frame. I trust my instincts and intuitions as if they were logic. Gwendolyn Charlene Skaggs
