The New Blues   

Collage & Poetry by Kathy Cotton 

On the Loom

The warp of me

is Quaker gray, 

a quiet woolen thread: 

modest, utilitarian, 

looped simply

on my frame.

But, oh, the weft, 

the vibrant weft of me,

weaves in and out

those sturdy strands

with shocking shades 

of peacock  and cockatoo

and shimmery 

hummingbird.

Co-mingled:

the whisper

and shout of my life.
