i am
unknown

I am black
 1
like the back of your throat when you
 2
scream.
 3
I am black
 4
like the tarmac, steaming hot and
 5
impenetrable.
 6
I am black like your frozen pupils
 7
at a funeral.
 8
I am black like the melanoma
 9
on your thigh.
 10
I am black like the loyal labrador
 11
who licks you regardless of your crimes.
 12
I am black like the shadow from which
 13
you cannot divorce.
 14
I am black like outer space
 15
always surrounding you
 16
present at your birth
 17
and death
 18
unknowable
 19
and vast.

The back of the throat is not "black" when you do anything.

Tarmac is not "impenetrable," especially when it is "steaming hot."

Why would "pupils" be "frozen" at a "funeral?" they wouldn't be, I can only assume you mean the body of the deceased, but as you do not get this idea across in the I have to take you literally.

The last 5 lines do not really make sense to me.

unk who doesn't get it -- the unk who's made a living editing time-share ads, critiques a poem for the first time and feels dizzy.

a minor critique.. and i don't like to think i can improve someones poem..but i am on a site called poetry critical..
you should have called the poem "i am black"
