Pretty wings

I have songs in my head

That remind me of dark nights

Watching the street lights dance 

Feeling safe enough to fall asleep 

“Your face will be the reason I smile” 

Warmth in the cold 

On a long drive back home



-After Maxwell


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.
