Federico García Lorca

The afternoon, grown wild
with figs and hot murmurs,
swoons and falls…
And black angels were soaring
through the western sky.
Angels with long tresses
and hearts of olive oil.

— Federico García Lorca, “The Feud,” Romancero Gitano. (Agebe, March 2006) Originally published 1928.
