The Deliberate Study of the Skies
Peninsula light of Gloucester
transformed his day into night: ash,
pewter, aluminum, stone. I saw white,
but no, it’s steel, and a vexed steel at that.
I voted for it before I voted against it.
The complexities of salvation: stretched and spoken
with clashing grays: slate, silver, Spanish gris.
I have options, my muddied palette, weighted
with gray: this stuttered, endless cape.
