Assessing the Blues

Assessing the Blues

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Assessing the Blues

I see you and

You are not blue

Most definitely not

Mediterranean

Chows tongue

Or Maltese sky blue

 

I see you

In fact I can see

right through you

I hear you

You don’t sound blue

Most definitely not

True

Berry

Powder

Paint-box

Or duck egg blue

 

On the contrary

I can see

and I can hear you too

For what it's worth

I would not consider

yourself blue

If I was you

I would consider

myself read

Pleasure is mine.
Just realised there's a lot of blue about.
Blue on blue. Blue murder.
The blues.
Or the classic. What shade of blue should we paint the room. Red, dear.

You are so welcome!
Brilliant & playful & clever! Good play on words with a satisfying twist at the end. Please don't be blue . . . unless it's blueberry, then it's OK (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A canny near-canine view of how it is, how perception strikes a thought and its servant pen. Read twice, unsure its route but tis Intriguing.
