1. Black and white
To judge everything as either one way or the other, good or bad.
Our boss always thinks that everything is straightforward, but he doesn’t realize that this whole situation is not as black and white as he thinks!

Somewhere very dark, when it is hard to see anything
We had another power cut last night; it was as black as night in our house. We didn’t even have any candles!

Snow, I was surprised. The first snow
choked in my throat,
I wanted to cough, to run
I didn’t see the street, the poplars, the park benches,
the conductor’s whistle. Snow.
Faces of idiots abused the air
and turned to snow.
I didn’t have a chance to read the “Massacre”
or “The Dead” by Joyce.
I didn’t know death and snow
I was three that year, Mother threw me up in the air, a tree in the yard.
Now we don’t live in snow –
Mother’s nostrils don’t breathe. 1982.
