The Blues – A Poem

Western seagulls hang-glide blue skies.
Nearby, blue-tailed magpies
tilt their beaks
squinting, plotting,
sizing up,
my azure steed's hooves (my car tires),
eyeing the morsels
tucked in the tires' grooves.
While, apartment dwellers in skyscrapers
'sing the blues.'β€”
about trotting hooves
making beelines
for personal earlobe real estate.
Here's a prime example:
Mondays' eve, come mid-Winter
when HDTVs become ramparts
blasting sound volleys,
down-the-hall turrets;
pelting Hockey Night in Canada
play by play tooting horns
to the occasional goal, while
commercials toast with the popular staple:
beer or ale, Molson Canadian -
Labatts Blue, Cheers eh!

    1. Lol 🀣 It was fun to play the blues notes poetical.
      I wanted it to be a story more than a poem hence the explanation hopefully to add humor.
      Thanks for noticing the transition from coastal to city and from sky to skyscrapers…well spotted.
      Happy weekend.
      Oh yes, and Cheers eh! 🍻

      1. As always, great poetic crafting Poet, one could literally feel that shift from one blues to another
        Then closing off with a choice of beer, keeping the blues theme.

  2. A wonderful ode to the many facets of life. I adore the apartment scene, the sharing of each other’s cheers through walls, a sense of community comes up and feels good. Lovely poem, Suzette.
