I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.
-Oscar Wilde

Black. Simple. Unchanging.
But Effervescent. Shades
In a life. Shades of
A dark unknowing.
Shades of anger.
Shades confusion.
Shades of love.
Shades of ecstasy.
Shades of hate.
Shades of understanding.
Shades of happiness.
A light comprehension
Of shades. A death of
Shades. But Effervescent.
Unchanging. Simple. Black.

Simplistic but deep. That is the idea. The idea that life in essence is the same. The idea that the events in life all lead back to the same.

A fascinating idea, and beautifully articulated in this miracle of poetry. It is a strange and new thought to me; I must dwell on it. Well done.
