Black was Christopher's color. His car was black. The frames on his glasses were black. Christopher had black shoes, a black coat, black furniture and a black ash tray. Now I understand why he liked the color so much. There's a certain comfort in black. Black is professional and sophisticated. Black is the color of determination. As I look around my room, and my wardrobe, my color dark blue and green, blood red and dark brown. A purple mardi gras necklace and a Black Ice car freshner hang from my closet door. Sometimes I long to forget. To be black.
