The Blackest Black

The blackest black
Absorbs 99.965% of light
A black hole abyss
Resting on the liminal edge
Between the imagined and real
The blackest black
Owned exclusively
By one man — an artist
Immoral, I’m sure
Blacker than anything
You can imagine

  1. Your poem makes me wonder how black became so associated with evil (and death), at least in our culture. Perhaps it is because it is the absence of light?

    1. I’m sure the story behind it is fascinating and complex. I do remember reading somewhere that white used to be associated with death. Thank you for visiting, reading, and commenting, Alana.

  2. Love this one too. It evokes so many emotions from white patriarchal oppression to the mystery of black holes. Love your use of language here.
