When the sky is just the perfect shade of blue




‘it’s the color of my wedding dress!’ 
she says
and he always fires back 
‘periwinkle?’ 
and there’s a wink built right in 
and then she says ‘cornflower blue.’

and after 22 years it’s something 
           that never gets 
old, 
always new, this  
laughter borrowed 
over blue.
