I.





Sobs
Despair
My grandmother
Up in clouds
Felt
Dizzy
Faint
Mind
Flies away
I wear
Black

II.
Black is
Beautiful
The color
Of the earth
The color
Of Africa
The color of
Me

III.
Long
Black
Rope
She goes
Up
And down
Sweat trickles
Down her
Face
She sings
Her song

VI.
Only seven
Stands on brown
Stage
The sun shines
On only him
In his long
Black
Cloak
Holds the hat
Anticipation
A crowd a waits
Lo and behold
Out comes
Mr. Hare

V.
Cold
Black
Steel
Fit perfectly
In my hand
Put my finger
On the
Trigger
Felt the freeze
On my
Temple
Felt the
Sweat
Run down
My cheek
Closed my eyes
All I see
Now is
Black

VI.
Does the
Devil
Wear black
Does he
Cherish
The color
Above all
Others?
Is he
The one
Who decided
Black shall
Be
His
Color

VII.
A black
Beginning
From Africa
You arrive
So do I
Conceived from it’s
Womb
Was the
World
