life is gray
and full of 5’s
on a scale from 1-10
until i grab a pen
then poetry
allows me
some ‘Roy G. Biv’
and to
dance across all the other numbers

(this is how we learned to remember the colors of the rainbow, in grade school….. Roy G. Biv….. red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet….. not sure if they still teach this? Last I heard, indigo may have gotten canned!)
