The Mysterious Color Blue

A poem, for the color blue.

Blue, what did I ever do to you?
Why do you never appear in any of my favorite foods?
Why do you tease us in name
…visually you’re not the same
Where are you?
I tried juniper berries in soup.

I tried blue corn popcorn.

Blue. When I cook you, you always turn purple or white on me.
You always tease me on the food packaging.
Blue. Where are you, blue?
Raw blueberries? Nature’s fast food? No cooking required?
This is the only recipe
known to me
that is truly the truest most true…
