Blues Are Green

Updated on April 29, 2017

changes rearranges

perspective out of line

queries contrary

the date

is out on time

players soothsayers

tongue out of tune

hara shwarma

the time is now

too soon

spectrum rectum

upside in down

circus surplus

blues are green

and brown

Peoples steeples

standing in the pews

praying saying

the them the they

they’re you!

      Hi Xstatic, yes! That definitely had some kind of impact. Love Miles. Thanks for your comments. Russ

      The title and the dissonance remind me of jazz which reminds me of the song Blue In Green on Miles Davis' 1959 great jazz album Kind of Blue.

      Dissonance indeed. As always, you get it Larry. As always, I love receiving and reading your comments. Thank you. Russ

      Dissonance for the everyman...The ear listens but does not understand the complexity of the harmonica's hymn or an Apache chant... the eye looks but does not comprehend a starving soul or the interconnectivity of all things...We ARE they, we ARE them...

      I haven't thought on dissonance in quite a while...You have me dusting off Camus and Sartre in search of my lost pragmatic skepticism...

      I enjoyed reading this out loud, especially the last part which I shouted out with gusto !!...Thanks, Larry
