Death Can Only Wear Black

Death Can Only Wear Black

Whoever said that Death
could only wear black,
never saw the colourful ways 
people could die.

Never saw frozen river blue 
across human limbs 
that shake with each breath.

Never saw dancing fire sunset
from burns cooking flesh.

Never saw pooling blood ink 
covering a knife like a sheath, 
from bone cuts.

But Death could only wear 
mocking oil black.
