By Simon Barraclough

You’re so blue
you probably think that Jarman’s Blue
is about you.

You’re the source of all blue,
of Edwin Morgan’s ‘Little Blue Blue’,

bluemungous, ur-blue.
Earth blue held up to you
is muck ball brown and grass stain green,

our oceans but a drop,
a dust of moth,
a mote of you.
