He Wore Black

And he wore black and said
he was the bridegroom of death
but not then – he told me after
told me on a day of his laughter
How quickly he can create nothing
turn the room on his finger
and smile as if things
couldn’t be better

What kind of substance is a a husband
brother father lover son?
And he did look handsome
read from the Song of Songs
and pured wine
like it was water
What kind of substance is a wife
sister mother lover daughter?

He Wore Black
