GRAY area

I just heard a splash
and could you even bother
to care at all?

A crushed jaw
whatever color
did you ask its name?

I’m pretty exhausted
of trying to explain
that I’m worth a damn

My Significance Does Not
Undermine Yours
and these wars are fake
and you can quote me on that

All the worst people I knew
were white as snow
but you won’t catch me
with a picket sign

We’re all just skin-sacks, in my mind.
