The Grey Rainbow

The cars in KL are grey.
4,914,992 shades of grey, in fact,
according to JPJ in 2011,
that create a mosaic of greys
shuttling through the city.


But the underwear of each and every owner
of those grey cars
represent a shimmering rainbow
of prints, textures, colours
and desires.


Invisible triangles of colour are constantly
speeding down Federal Highway
straight into the heart of town
where the police
are waiting.


But the rainbow passes under their eyes,
unnoticed.
This is grey magic.
There are no rainbows here.
There is only grey.
