21st Century Blue

by Christos Polydorou

IMG-20160407-WA0001Blue are the moors.
Blue are the wars
and all the broken doors
of England. Blue
is the eye. Blue
is the house of lords
and blue is the post-Brexit
capital of England. Blue
is every boy and every girl,
and blue
is the glue
that holds
the two sexes together.
I am so
in love with you,
I will forever be blue
too, smurf-like,
a secondary character in Avatar,
a silly blue fool.
You will say to me, Christos,
what have I done, to you?
And I will reply, You saw me.
You heard me.
You let me be,
letting me out
of your sight.
What was needed.
