Black is the ash of what was once life
The lung of a smoker
Flesh rotting in the grave
The night sky lit by smiling stars
The dark clouds rolling in with the storm
The mask of fear over the world

A train derailing from the tracks
Loud tormented screams of agony
Chanting of believers in dim candle light
The decaying meats of road kill in July
Rancid eggs in your fridge
All of these are black

Black is the fuzz on cheese under your bed
The piecing chill of ice running down your spine
The sharp pain of a needle penetrating your lip
The pull of your stitches as you try to open your mouth
The licorice that everyone despises even though it was first
The vengeance as it spills from your lips
