Color Caste Denomination

Color Caste Denomination

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



Poem Color Caste Denomination - Emily Dickinson
