Day 3: This House

The writing 201 challenge is over, but I plan on continuing with it!

Really had a ball writing! The one thing I wish I had been better at was writing and sharing my work daily(work and school kinda got in the way).

So I’ve decided to share my work anyways like a boss! This was originally meant for Day 3 (Skin, Prose, Internal Rhyme). I wrote it after watching a few (dozen-lol) videos of this Alotta Boutte. 

When I started down my road to burlesque a few years ago, I searched high and low for women that looked like me so I could pick up tips on how to really showcase my body.

I found that and so much more when I finally came across this lovely woman here! Her creativity, stage presence, charisma, and realness blew me away!

For that reason, I would like to dedicate this poem to her.

Thank you for inspiring me to be more of my most authentic self – on and off the stage. I keep hoping that when she’s finally free to give master burlesque classes that I will be able to go.

If not – don’t be surprised when ya’ll see me put up a GoFundMe to raise them funds! LOL


I loves the house that I am in and the house I am in loves me.

How else could it constantly care for me?

To remain standing proudly throughout these years –

Oh how I love the house that I am in!

It suits me so – could never let it go.

This house that I built.

With its rich cinnamon brown exterior, and lush posterior..

I never want to be without this house that I built!

This house cherishes me – completes me.

This house that I built.

Seeing one 'acceptable' troupe for fat black women like me was more than enough to entice me to step up and take a shot! ______________________________________________________________________________________________ After spending hours on stock pile sites and not finding the images of women that she wanted to see on her blog or book covers led K. McCoy to make more of her photography hobby. Besides shooting portraits, street and travel photography, K. McCoy would love to tap more into her creative skills and collaborate with cosplay artists as well as authors looking for their dream book covers.
