NaPoWriMo #2 : Her hair is…

No shadow,
star-spangled mirror
or squat lodestone
in this hue of ink.

This is a hefty mouth
that absorbs the light
in one greedy gulp,

the punch
inflicted on a
white seesaw stage
of jousting contrasts.

The tar sticks
to everything
it touches –

but, instead of
obscuring

some curious enormity
in me seems to grow,
as the tide rises

to break over the shore…

The second piece for NaPoWriMo was largely inspired by this article on Vantablack, the world’s blackest substance in existence. No more annoying glare, ever.
