I asked why you’d want something
black and white when blue is the color
of choice in this house.

Marveled at the sagacity,
we clink glasses and toast
to your new shade.

The wind knocked over
the Adirondack chairs again
so you decide things are

better left knocked over.
And like the fool, I fall
to the side and wait.

-refers from the word blue in Daniel Shapiro’s poem Lessons Not Learned

  1. I’m loving this, Julie! Thank you!

  2. I love the pacing of this. It’s a perfect display of the imagery we’ve come to expect from a Julie Ellinger Hunt poem. Kudos!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the line-endings throughout.
