Dark Blue

You’re my favorite melancholy,
when my life
is ultramarine, navy,
cobalt,
and dark blue.
Smoking American spirits
on your back porch,
making fun
of our misery.
Watching the sky.

But, when the clouds
dissipate,
you’re gone.
And I’m left with my thin smile,
nicotine breath,
and
the aftermath
of rain falling in love
with
the earth.
