a shadow of gray by Kenneth Kesner

nadia walks into the room
wearing an outfit of dreams
torn just below the hem
she turns back gazes where
its okay to laugh only to smile
and hearing their voice shell
nadia looks round by us
isnt it a museum in here
and statues from the corners
at her knees now
isn’t it she says and waits
she hasnt anywhere else
to go away from herself
steps slow into herself
finally she’s quite the same
for a while stays a while
doesn’t she
