the day it all started
October the 28th, 2016
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,
as everything goes to dimness.
