I'm reading Hanif Kureishi's short novel, named "The Tale of the Turd".
I don't know the exact meaning of "dark" in this sentence.

<I'm crying inside too, you know,but what can I do but stick my hand down the pan, into pissy water, that's right, oh dark, dark,dark, and fish around until my fingers sink into the turd, get a grip and yank it from the water.>

Dark means dirty?
Please, help me.

    I think "dark" here means that the color is dark and you can't see through it, or what's in it. This is because the water is dirty, as you say.
