it was amazing
bookshelves: free-shelf-at-work, poetry
Read in March, 2010

i loved the nontraditional format -- thoughts presented in numbered propositions, as short as a line or as long as a page or so, as interconnected prose poems. and i loved the magpie-like collection of facts, quotes, and history related to the color blue, supporting a personal narrative or at least portrait. i'm someone drawn to the color blue as well, and it was delicious to live vicariously through someone who allowed a total commitment to the color for several years.
