Can You Poet - 'Whiteness Walks Into the Bar' 
Event details can be found by CLICKING HERE

Kezzabelle Ambler performs in this event - Hosted by Tre Ventour. The event will be discussing Whiteness and the various connotations it has / the forms it takes, including White power and Whiteness in our structures and institutions, from education and policing to HR, charity and the private sector. "Neutral is white. The default is white. Because we‘re born into an already written script that tells us what to expect from strangers due to their skin color, accents and social status, the whole of humanity is coded as white." - Reni Eddo-Lodge

After a year where many of us have been in discussions about racism in the West, I thought we it'd be interesting to talk about its partner (kind of), privilege.
Continued:
"Blackness. however, is considered the 'other' and therefore to be suspected. Those who are coded as a threat to the collective representation of humanity are not white. These messages were so powerful that four-year-old me had already recognised them, watching television, notice that all the characters who looked like me were criminals at worst, and sassy sidekicks at best." - Reni Eddo-Lodge
Whiteness will be our topic in its many forms and manifestations.

Oyster Mind - Spoken Word Video By Kezzabelle Ambler
From Kezzabelle Ambler -
I had many realisations, learning & revelations during the 1st hard lockdown last year, haven't we all eh?

'Oyster Mind' grew from writing of escapes with my

Weaving Words group in March 2020.
I realised that if someone understood & loved my mind & heart, I was ready to share my inner treasures.
'Oyster Mind' is part of a collection I'd like to publish & record in my 'big birthday year' called 'Permission To Love Yourself' - Living for the day when 'they really love themselves' is a celebration rather than a put down.

'Picture, No Picture' on WYSY Launch Live
(still wear the Dutch Army Boots in this poem )
Life in These Old Boots Yet
Eight hole
ex-army surplus boots.
What action have they seen?
By whom, where and when?
Worn before – new to me.
Time marked, pale tan nubuck,
comfortable, smooth – soft.
Contrasting hard toe cap fronts
leading the way forward through
unsteady, uncompromising terrain – tough.
Hints of musk lingers
earnt from previous life’s use.
Essential oil massaged
deep into the sole
revives, eases and prepares - reborn.
Ready to be tomboy punky favourites,
or worn with fairy outfits,
to dance and adventure,
to fit and mould to a new pair of feet,
walking an unchartered fresh path – sure footed.

First Airing - 'Emergency Muse' poem.
As your 'Emergency Muse' just email or Direct Message Kezzabelle for your bespoke poem for someone special✍️info@kezzabelle.co.uk
Emergency Muse
Let me wrap my words around you
soothe with syllables and TLC,
hold you safely in my prose
to heal today’s life malady.
Where blunt harsh internal knocks
leave an eternal bruise,
let me ease the bully’s disease,
let me be your rescue muse.
Let’s soak hurting tears and fears
in calming psalms,
a devotional potion bathed daily,
a cleansing stanza balm.
Restful rhymes are
immunity remedies
that help alleviate
persistent anxieties.
Lullaby stitches applied carefully
to love lines torn apart,
turn time’s pages with soft phrases
to mend a broken heart.
Sleepless nights and bad dreams
need a boost filled prescription,
playfully put right
with a comedic injection.
Calamities need anti-inflammatories,
to help all ills from getting worse,
ingested on a regular basis,
take a tonic via verse.
Sonnet power plasters
applied with poised fingers at the ready,
dulcet tones deliver poetic tomes
to keep life’s balance steady.
Prayerful pen in hand,
no promise of heroics,
clauses formulated to serve,
I’m your emergency poet.
