Darkness and light
I am zebra
Black and white
Some good, some bad
Inseparably striped

Sunlight and shadow
Does my pattern please you?
Do I fit your expectation?
I can carry you
 And I can kill you

Position is relative
On either side of the fence
Are you my twin or opposite
Or a unique geometry
Somewhere between...

Moonlight and midnight
Just how white?
I can't hide at night
Just how black?
Your eyes may never adjust

Positive and negative
No gray areas here
To know me better
Merely takes higher resolution
I'm zebra until the end
