San Francisco Wrap-up! The #aFoxalypse2015

Can I rave a bit?

Ok.

San Francisco was great!

The Red Hots Burlesque show at Beatbox on Wednesday was fantastic. Great cast, professional venue, and fun audience. I highly recommend checking out one of their shows if you are in the Bay Area.

Thursday I mucked around San Francisco proper. Mostly at the Fisherman’s Wharf. I checked out the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien. It’s pretty amazing how they’ve kept the ship in running order for 72 years. The thing was built to last!IMG_5923

And Sea Lions!

Then there are the Greenwich Stairs of Telegraph Hill… You know me, if it’s hard I have to try it out. Three hundred and seventy-eight stairs. Took me 10 minutes up, and after checking out Coit Tower, 6 minutes down…

And hangin with my friend at the White Horse Inn, the oldest gay bar in San Francisco!

Being wild at heart I took a drive on Friday and visited Big Basin State park then made my way over to Half Moon Bay. I have no words for how beautiful the mountains, Sequoias, and Ocean are. Here’s a few pics that may give you a sense.

SATURDAY was my big day. My first hosting of an erotic poetry open mic. We had a few poets and I peppered in my own work. The event took place at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s bdsm coffee joint. Me and them, nice fit eh?  I was impressed with the poetic talent on display. A good time was had by all! I also have the feeling there may be other hosting gigs in my future.

And present @Gerbilfluff with the award for best twitter poem in the #aFoxalypse contest! Congrats The Gerbil!

Learning a little blues fusion dance later that evening was something too. Hi to the ever so patient people I met and danced with into the small hours that evening! *waves* You all made my night!

Sunday I had a good chunk of time to check out a bit more of the city. Haight-Ashbury, the botanical gardens, the AIDS memorial grove, and the Golden Gate at sunset were all showstoppers in their own ways.

Add to all that coolness, my host TeaseBlossom and her partner who were warm and welcoming and I thank them sincerely. It was through their hospitality that I was able to make the trip. I hope to see them again!

So there is the wrap up for all those random travel pictures I’ve been peppering my social media with for the last week! I am by no means done performing for the summer, but I’ll be staying local. My next show is at the Mounds Theater in St Paul for the Top Drawer Burlesque Expo.

Thankful I’m a Woman

IMG_3386.JPG

I am a woman who doesn’t own a dress

I am woman and I can’t stress

How much I need to confess

That I can fix a drain and kill the spiders, but I still like to be held from time to time

And being treated like a petty girl in bed on occasion is sublime

Even dirty,

Cos I’m masculine of center but only just
I’m right in the middle and I feel I must

Bust the crust of this dichotomy just to be me

And free

I am a woman redefined, coloring outside the lines of genderly pictures people have in their minds

You can call me Butch, that’s fine, he she thee ze they

As long as you’re being kind

And sometimes this poem might be the only sign you get

But don’t fret,

Cos I’m a woman.
