Blue - Fall 2020

Blue is the throat, a voice to be heard. A blue streak (n): to speak at great length. Blue is the Atlantic, where a stranger tosses and turns somewhere across it, on bedsheets braided in sapphire returning, watery and saturated, to a dream. Blue is a minor note, the sound of the blues and of jazz. Blue is rain on your face—a slap, a kiss, a fragmented G-minor Greek chorus. Blue is 2013: the year In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue was published, the play responsible for setting in motion the Oscars Best Picture winner of 2017.  Blue is the flower called Forget Me Not. Blue is She loves me. He loves me not -- or They love me. Blue is somebody’s first cheap latex condom. Blue is skin at birth and after death. Blue is: 2 consonants, 2 vowels said in 1 syllable, like love -- or hate.
