In Black and White

Elaine Equi

X-ray of a day’s
bones and teeth.

Blonde flowers,
black water,
shadows at play.

Hot jazz and cool jazz.

Dominoes and dice.

Spades and clubs,
but not diamonds or hearts
unless grey diamonds, grey hearts.

The inner silver being
that likes wandering
the inside-out underworld
of B movies,

and silent movies,
their quiet sister.

There is nothing so clean
and polished
or dirty as black and white.

Typography of the logos.

Original sin.

The Garden of Eden
was black and white,

the color added later.
