Blue Monday

Blue Monday by Diane Wakoski : The Poetry Foundation

Here's the first part of Diane's poem:

Blue of the heaps of beads poured into her breasts   
and clacking together in her elbows;
blue of the silk
that covers lily-town at night;
blue of her teeth
that bite cold toast
and shatter on the streets;
blue of the dyed flower petals with gold stamens   
hanging like tongues 
Visit the Poetry Foundation to read the rest.  Then, write a blue poem yourself~
