7 Blocks...and Two Stories Up

Authored by Wynne Y. Henry

7 Blocks...and Two Stories Up encompasses metaphor and reality through art, culture, spirituality, race, class, and gender inspired by a "Roots" style journey from Langston Hughes' home in Harlem NY, to the Brooklyn neighborhood where my mother grew up. Along the way, I dropped a few words on the sidewalk. I hope you'll decide to pick them up and take them with you!

"If soul travel is real
I want to take that journey on a one-way ticket
dance among the planets
and live like I was meant to
unrestricted by gravitational pull of land
because caged birds sing but they can't soar with clipped wings
so if soul travel is real
I will fly"
