tinctures of gray

written by: Sneha Subramanian Kanta

 

dark gray night
               s
                     l
                          i
                     t
               h
                          e
               r
                     i
               n
                     g
                               into dawn
of gray sublimate concoctions, as
               p
                     r
                          i
                          s
                     m
               s
through sun rays and particles of dust,
how close was the bypassed night
where bandaged to-gether lovers lay,
his arms swell like spring
                over her conceding bones
                firm as the grasp of birth
                over the death of consciousness
                like two white flowers
unrelated to engage with the world.
