“The water burned a dark blue;

A blue canvas on which

I could paint a million pictures.

Under the ultraviolet spotlight,

the electric blue jellyfish

seemed quite invisible;

outlines of godly stardust,

almost imaginary;

feeding on the darkness.

With poisonous glossy ribbons

outstretched behind them.

And the water grew darker,

in the corners of the blue glass cage.

The kind of blue that

you see in a dream, or a nightmare

as if the moon itself had

taken a paintbrush and

took the time to describe to us

its soul and its spirit.”
