Colors in The Shade of Neutral

by Chris Sorrenti

before the flood
there will be anarchy
then winds of progress
will bring the rain
markers for the energy
abstract colors
in the shade of neutral

one by one
they shall blossom
each a spirit gliding free
infants to be born
of the politics of imagery
each a merchant of the word

the book of life
is a colorful story
for those who choose to read
it is a test
a lesson in the energy
for each reader in turn
their time will come
when the energy comes
to claim them
