I packaged pretty poems

Periodically pre-occupied by the prevalence of prose

I sometimes wonder if anyone knows 

The pain that pervades 

When you passively pack 

Proper nouns and proper sounds 

On poor poets back 

Ask her to think preemptively about 

Her principals participles 

Her tempo her time 

Her reality her fantasy her mind 

And present it poetically in 

Just 5 lines

Mattie Grace Levy

I'm a black woman, a classically trained oboist, a self-taught composer, and an introspective poet trying to comprehend my thoughts.
