Bluest

Bluest

Blue almost grey
storm choking on sky

blue dying
grey blazing with blue

blue bruised
becoming indigo
stalled before midnight

blue of a whale
crushed by sky

blue bleeding
dripping into grey
glass licked by gunmetal

sea crumbling cobalt
shadows on snow
memory of sky
branded into the white

slate blue
strands of smoke
unraveling
fading before touching
the blue of their birth

the neon of kingfisher
diving into the blue
in the black of a well

the chalk blue
shaken from a blue tit
cleaning its feathers
in the silver blue ash

the ring of gas flames
opening its fist
spreading its fingers
dusted in cornflower

the ultra marine
pouring from your arms
the sky
kicking at the storm

Laika died in the burning dark
dreaming of a blue ball
marbled with white
