Blue Too by John Perry

I woke to the sun pushing light
through the weave of smoky-blue curtains.
Put on my blue long sleeved tee-shirt,
the soft one you loved to wear,
when you wore nothing else.
Pulled on faded blue jeans
and those sneakers you like,
the ones with bright blue trim.
I tried to get as close to you
as blue clothes would allow.
Wear your smell like a blue tattoo
because tattoos last forever.
Just walked out my blue door,
followed the pale blue sky
down a street called Camino Azul,
to the café we found on our last walk.
The one with Breakfast Served All Day
pressed against the window glass
and a sign that says: World’s Best Blueberry Pancakes
The only kind I can eat when thinking of you.
