Poem Twenty-Eight

Black

April 28, 2013

 

It’s always about black

My favorite color

Not by choice

Black is my familiar:

a black cat for a black witch

Black clothes, black moods, black life

The devil is a blacksmith

hammering out sentences:

rewards/punishments/invitations,

always delivered/often accepted

The devil always has a full house

at his receptions

where pleasures go

unremembered, unenjoyed, and unrepaid

in perpetuity
