Blue is breath

Blue is a slipped silence

Blue is a silence speaking

Blue is a figure visible then vanished

Blue is a slant in perception

Blue is contradictory

Blue is a body in water

Blue is the water of scattered light

Blue is a body inside another body

Blue is the stammer of pleasure

Blue is essence: call this love or soul

Blue is the ink marking on skin

Blue is the skin branded

Blue is brushed history

Blue is apology

Blue is the mind unfurling

Blue are the curfews of church bells

Blue are the bricks of demolished homes

Blue are the invisible corridors of houses

Blue are the bruised walls

Blue are the flickered hours of dawn

Blue are the ghosts in a house

Blue are the houses left behind

Blue is their confession.
