I am a Maker

I like it when these things take my being

Twist it into tangles of hope and fear 

Drop the knot make it hold tight while falling


I like commanding over risks

Jumping out of a plane landing on my feet 

Playing publicly after plotting carefully 


I seek control over the unknown

Find it while diving deep 

Feeling more power with every sinking failure

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.
