Diversities of Gray

  Collage & Poetry by Kathy Cotton 

Diversities of Gray

My eyes scissor down

this bolt of asphalt

with dingy white selvage

unfolding toward a band

of silver crepe sky, 

pressed thin beneath 

layers of pearled sateen,

somber business flannel,

slate and charcoal wools.

Utility poles, like old needles

with drab thread,

push even stitches

along the highway’s edge.

Content without extremes

of black and white,

I wrap myself 

in the soft shades

of an overcast day.
