On Blue

This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it.

‘True blue’ is a ruse, a rhyme; it’s there, then it’s not.

Blue is glory and power, a wave, a particle, a vibration, a resonance, a spirit, a passion, a memory, a vanity, a metaphor, a dream.

Blue is a simile.

Blue, she is like a woman…And, as a woman, she is deadly.

― Christopher Moore, Sacré Bleu: A Comedy d’Art
