Dear People of The Internet,

I have a favor to ask. You see, I recently won the Olympia People’s Mic Women Of The World Poetry Slam qualifier.

That’s an actual picture of me crying when I won, and Rachel Greene being a supportive awesome person.

So now, I am asking for your support to get to WOWPS this March. I would love the opportunity to present my poetry on the national stage and compete representing my favorite town, Olympia, WA. I am a single mom and I’m a disabled, troubled artist poet so money is really really tight. Poetry is my passion. It has given me a voice and helps me heal to survive this rollercoaster called life. So if you enjoy my blog writing, I hope you do, and would love to support the arts, women, and moms in this way, please make a donation to “Send Lennee to WOWPS” on Indiegogo http://igg.me/at/ppniIyhgWyk/shre/8193110

So why should you give me money to go to WOWPS? What is that anyway? And will giving me your money change the world? Ill tell ya.
WOWPSis more than a poetry slam. Its a week where the most outspoken women come together to share and learn in sisterhood. Please help me get there. It will help me grow as a person. Its an experience I would love to share with.my daughter. I have worked hard to qualify to be a part of it. Sending us there would literally influence my life and my daughters chances of going to college. Yes you can change the world one dollar at a time. And for 25$ you even get a special edition handmade chapbook signed by me.

How cool is that? I designed the cover and it has my best slam poems so it’s very cool. So cool it will be worth 300$ when im a famous poet. An investment shall we say?

Oh! And if you haven’t seen me perform before, heres some recent footage from Seattle Poetry Slam

And some really old footage of from before I ever competed in a slam, because it’s always fun to look at old footage.

That’s the poem that started this journey. One. It’s been said in more places than I could imagine already. How about New York?

Thanks for following reading supporting and listening. Thank you.

Thank you.

Keep Calm I’m the Queen

I am just so tired of this crap in the news every day. Girls kids black white innocent bystanders. When will this bullshit stop? I’ll tell you when.

When I’m Queen.

Q-How long has this racist classist genocidal bullshit been going on?
A- Forever.

Q- For how many of the forever racist classist genocidal bullshit filled years has Lennée been Queen?
A- Zero.

Q- Is it possible having Lennée as Queen would begin a new age of tolerance health compassion and prosperity?
A- Sure, anything is possible.

Q-Do you have a better faster idea for improving our lives and this planet than immediately building a Unitarian eco friendly neutral non GMO fracking free hemp fueled city state where all plants in their natural form are legal and everybody gets a free tiny house where Lennée is Queen mostly because it was her idea and babies and puppies love her so who can argue with that?

A- No, you do not have a better idea. I’m the Queen.  I have the idea.
I rest my case.

Thank you for listening and stay tuned for more from Lennée for Queen in 2016
