“Gray” by Gerald So

Fading bleakly, / truer to life….

Noir’s original palette
projects no choice
for all in the frame,
their desperate acts
fading bleakly,
truer to life
than we care to say.

Gerald So edits The Five-Two weekly crime poetry site. Previously he served as an officer of The Short Mystery Fiction Society and fiction editor for Kevin Burton Smith’s www.thrillingdetective.com.
