Blue For Me and Black in Spades

Blue for me and black

in spades.


One up and down

with running totals –

marked in blue and

black for  you.


Blue of me who

counts my cards

and wilds imagination –



Black in prairie the

storms and sounds

of gospel chant.


Blue maker go away,

set a pathway normal –

release the hounds

of god.


Draw me sun, sketch

some rabbit rare in shapes

and whites – no

bloody poetry



Blue for me and black

in spades.
