a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Blue Is The Right Color

BLUE IS THE RIGHT COLOR
For carefully folded paper stars
for words that try to hold their meaning
for raindrops that never reach the soul

Blue is the right color
for dreams of youth
cast upon life's Ferris Wheel
torn, worn, scattered

Blue is the right color
when memories hold you
with nothing left 
except the unraveling
