Black Rainbow

You are

a silent song,

a breeze whispering to

fluttering palm fronds

in a childhood memory

of sleeping birds

and unheard sighs

on a dream-filled night.

 

You are

obsidian light

illuminating the blinding purity

of austerity,

the cleansing tar

swallowing the soiled bones

of unoriginal sin.

 

You are

a rainbow of black

promises to quench

this desiccated earth

with the floods of blood flow,

until our hearts grow gills

once more.
