the day it all started

October the 28th, 2016

gray day

today is gray.

the sky, the highway, the cold air

inside of our car.

we drive home from school on a slate of cement,

slicked with rain, and i try to sleep but

i like the weather too much.

i resort to looking out the window.

the gray skyline. gray buildings.

they look like something from a movie trailer.

even the lights seem smothered

with a blanket of mute color.

the cars occasionally breathe. nothing shines,

everything is a calm,

swimming

ocean.

as everything goes to dimness.
