hints of gray

gray is present
as i exist
in the present tense
a bundle of spindly wires
rusted in peeling plastic
a harness unharnessed
useless and frail
still thr rains only threaten
nothing falls
listless hopes
awaiting the battering
cold drops shaped like tears
the skies do not weep
they are aghast
afraid, ashamed, aloof
asymmetrical allegories
everything is gray
now, gray, present
enumerated lucidity
a body sways
hung on the dangling participle
of technicolor dreamscraps
the gray swallows me
jonas in my rowboat
in the guts of a wailing whale
