born to be blue

is there a hand
that places us
just so
on the color wheel
of life
or is it just
a roll of the dice?

i have come to a
conclusion:
there is no doubt
some are born to be blue

we are given over
sacrifices to sorrow
while some are enveloped in
a cloud of golden grace

from the moment
they are pulled
into this world
they walk in sunshine
barely caressed by
the harsh brush of blue

while some of us
squalling and squealing
emerge shrouded in a caul
of unrelenting night

we cannot escape
that narrow band
but wander ceaselessly
through
cobaltprussiansapphire
somehow always ending up
at midnight blue

i sit here
my skin dyed indelible indigo
and brood on this
and other bitter mysteries
