A Title

Dirt

and not copper

makes a colour darker.

It makes the shape so heavy

and makes no melody.

It blackens

what was once white

and muffles

what could once sing

and weighs down

what was once light.

The brown is ugly

with black earthworms

yellow red orange

decaying leaves.

It clings

and clogs

dampens

and destroys

anything

that it touches.
