Cruella in Black and White

Cruella in Black and White

written by: Troy DeFrates


Twisted Black and White is gray
Letting the Dog have her day
Another color, Black Stays

Symbiotic outcries
Right and wrong never lies
The Dog opens her eyes

Standing oh so lost
Pretense has a cost
Blackness heals her loss

The Dog released
Anger has ceased
No longer leashed

Black imbibes
Black confides
Black inside

Beneath her shade
Lost in the fade

An identity
Released and set free

Expressing her perfume
Marking all in the room

Burying her ugliness
Beneath chaos and a dress.
