A MILLION SHADES OF GRAY (THE SONG OF DAYS)

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

Let me tell you a story
of a million shades of gray,
a story
of blue skies and thunderstorms
of madness and dreams
of a thousand faces and places
in a single day
and a thousand and one nights
of delirium and desire,
of hot breath and beating hearts
ruby lips
and soft velvet flesh
bathed in sweat,
bodies intertwined
like arcane symbols
come together in some
mysterious ancient rite…
Let me tell you a story
of yesterday and tomorrow
and this moment right now…

the wind blows
golden leaves
clattering
down empty sidewalks,
diamonds glitter
on East River-
everything
bathed in light…
