"No One Wondered" is a good example of black humor.  The poem first appeared on my audio book CD, Until Death Do Impart.

 

NO ONE WONDERED

 

The bride chose black

for her wedding gown.

A frightening amount

of mascara

entombed her stare,

and her ears were adorned

with upside-down crosses.

Her arms were strands

of overcooked spaghetti.

Her hips were straight bone.

Spiked high heels

completed her ensemble.

No one wondered

when the groom

drove up in a hearse.
