Black is


By Vic Nogay



They say, “Black is a demon stealing your colors,”

but black is all colors at once, and I

am the shepherd of shadows.

Salivating at the speedball in my pocket,

I cut it, roll it around, listen to it purr.

A dark strike to the middle of us

and I see stars.



Vic Nogay writes to explore her traumas, misremembrances, and Ohio, where she is from. Her work appears or is forthcoming in Versification, Anti-Heroin Chic, (mac)ro(mic), Ellipsis, and other journals. Twitter: @vicnogay. Read: linktr.ee/vicnogay.
