Mikaela Castledine #310 No way to paint ravens

Kapoor has the rights to
the blackest black
the rest of us can whistle for it
whatever grinding paste we make
there will always be a glimmer

maybe he is right to keep it from us
the colour of no hope
an abyss
the apocalypse

this is as close as we can come
pitchy at the end of the road
a blackdrop to shine our torch upon

we are all going there
into the unknown when the lights go out
with no real way to paint ravens
we will be unaccompanied into the dark
