Grayscale

DVerse’s Poetics prompt is to write from the perspective of a color. I suppose this poem will do. 🙂 

My gray marker sees

Mostly, the inside of a box,

Filled with other, brighter colors.

He feels jealousy

When his friends get to adventure,

Get to lend their color

To flowers, hearts, and any manner

Of design. Resigned,

He waits — yet feels grateful

When I color the cats:

He is amazing at that!

The gray marker gets a starring role here.
