76 Pages

when the wind turns east
taking a strand of hair or
2 with it
you’re at the border,
checking for surplus
ham, exotic

once a year you
treat yourself to
a cherry coke but
today was
not that day

Populated by strangers and lovers, the living and the dead, BLUE MONDAY moves across domestic and imagined landscapes exploring the cultural phenomenon of “Blue Monday”. Folding four calendar years into one, these poems trace the seasons and an ever-shifting experience of being in the world. How light can alter the texture of things. How days may be blue elsewhere, with their own purpose.
