Eartha Kitt by by Gordon Parks, 1952 : Angel

Eartha Kitt by Gordon Parks, 1952. A angel photographed by another angel.

Knowing she was alive

she took every ounce of depleted favor

every attack of insult savored

stopped and held her world in place

carved a song and moved a kingdom…..

Born from the Black Foot Indian and stolen

Born from the Arabian Knights and fallen

Born from the Mali Kingdom defamed

This is your Sister

Queen of the North Star

Standing Still.
