Black's supposed to be static.

An empty curve through which light is hurled

blindly to strike goosefoots and yucca.

But I know black can leap. It jumped one long

night on my Mother, she rose on a fast wing,

conscious mind no matter.

I learned that black was an open mouth at first,

never dragging, like light speed.

More like jaws of a young croc

clamping on wildebeest eyes at a river.

Blind men don't call black a blessing. An all

too seeing prophet might, should black

try for a promising ending.

Not like war's on a dozen

fronts, or aging's anywhere.

Death won't let me go. Black might.
