Imaginary Morning Glory


 'If blue/ were  not blue how could love be love...'

Yes, if you ask me, there is definitely a correlation between the colour blue and love! (I don't mind that I don't know exactly what this poem is about, but I know I like what it is getting at. And I love how open it is to imaginative interpretation.)


Imaginary Morning Glory - C.D. Wright


Whether or not the water was freezing. The body

would break its sheathe. Without layer on layer

of feather and air to insulate the loving belly.

A cloudy film surrounding the point of entry. If blue

were  not blue how could love be love. But if the body

were made of rings. A loose halo would emerge

in the telluric light. If anyone were entrusted to verify

this rare occurrence. As the petal starts to

dwindle and curl unto itself. And only then. Love,

blue. Hallucinogenic blue, love.
