Color — Caste — Denomination —
These — are Time's Affair —
Death's diviner Classifying
Does not know they are —
 
As in sleep — All Hue forgotten —
Tenets — put behind —
Death's large—Democratic fingers
Rub away the Brand —
 
If Circassian — He is careless —
If He put away
Chrysalis of Blonde—or Umber —
Equal Butterfly —
 
They emerge from His Obscuring —
What Death — knows so well —
Our minuter intuitions —
Deem unplausible —
