Black is her spider web
Black are her widow’s weeds
Black is her collar
And black are her mourning beads
Black is her baby grand
Black is her lace-gloved hand
Black is her casket
All woven of reeds

Red is her hourglass
Red is her windowpane
Red are her pupils
And red is her lipstick stain
Red is her reckless sting
Red is her ruby ring
Red is her bonfire
A pyre in the rain

Black are her widow’s weeds
Red is her windowpane
Black are her mourning beads
Red is her lipstick stain
Black is the blood she seeps
Red are the tears she weeps
Black are her pleasures
And red is her pain
