Paradox (a poem)

when i say you are the god of black and white
i don't mean it like
true or false
good or evil
wrong or right

when i say you are the god of black and white
i mean that you are fully both day and night
the presence and the absence
the cosmos and the speck
of paint
that washes
from my forearm
down the drain

when i say you are the god of black and white
i mean that you are both the darkness and the light
as well as
every shade
of all the colors
in between
