Black is the color of
Halloween night;

darkness,
magnifying your fears;

the concept of time,
confusing
but deep;

the unknown
end,
the beginning
of everything;

dread and excitement,
alike.

Black is the color of
an Xbox,
your favorite
relief;

a tire,
moving slowly,
as you run
out of gas;

rocks —
wet,
shiny,
as they travel
down
the swift
creek.

Black is the color of
the midnight sky,
in its moonless season.
