Lupita Nyong’o
The darkness was folded under her skin
And she felt the shimmer of night,
When lights dance in the evening
Across a bustling, humid cityscape.

Each droplet of black was pooled
Within her. She was a lake of noir
Where a haunted detective's trench coat 
Hung in the corner of a seedy, uncleaned office.

Each facet of midnight reflected the morning.
A gemstone of pitch holding within the deepest secret:
The Euclidean faces give, cut from pure night,
The sun rise reflected, eternally bright.

Thomas Campion, English composer, poet and physician, died today in 1620.

Lupita Nyong’o, Kenya-Mexican actress and author, was born today in 1983.
