SMALL BLUE THING - Suzanne Vega Poems


Poems » suzanne vega » small blue thing

Today I am
    a small blue thing
Like a marble
    or an eye

With my knees against my mouth
I am perfectly round
I am watching you

I am cold against your skin
You are perfectly reflected
I am lost inside your pocket
I am lost against
    your fingers

I am falling down the stairs
I am skipping on the sidewalk
I am thrown against the sky
I am raining down in pieces
I am scattered like light
Scattering like light
Scattering like light

Today I am
A small blue thing
Made of china
    made of glass

I am cool and smooth and curious
I never blink
I am turning in your hand
Turning in your hand

small blue thing
