“Say she rose as light as a bird”

“Don’t Be Afraid to Fly” Mocada-museum.tumblr.com, ‘Mocada’. N. p., 2015.

They say the people could fly. Say that long ago in Africa, some of the people knew magic. And they would walk up on the air like climbin up on a gate. And they flew like blackbirds over the fields. Black, shiny wings flappin against the blue up there.
