I sat down for dinner at 7:22

The same time I sat down for breakfast 12 hours earlier

Who knew I would know the taste of milk just before expiration

Hearing the sounds of people running downstairs and jiggling keys

Flinching with every moment that it comes closer 

To the time my door is opened

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.
