How many
Look at things through
Manichean lenses
Polarizing into
Chiaroscuro starkness
And think they have the whole picture

Red and yellow and pink and green…

I try to look
Not only at the shades of grey
But across a broader spectrum
Where others see only black and white
And think themselves well bleached

I know I am deeply stained
Both with ink and otherwise
Unlike the Scottish lady at play
That I cannot get those spots out
And even so
There are hues I miss

Like how I write?
