L’Accord Bleu
(After Yves Klein)

The sky is as blue as I want it to be,
and, if I choose to believe grandmother,
then grandfather is up there,
dressed like a king of the wild frontier
with blue paint stains on his hip.
He flips pork loins on a grill
and listens to Lennon and McCartney,
throws bones for the dog to fetch,
still reading Henning Mankell’s novel,
lying in a hammock, counting planes,
thinking about how, when I was little,
I threw a Rolling Stones’ record out the window,
and how it decapitated a pigeon.
Then he’d be thinking of me
and when I’d come home.

Erik Davidkov is a Bulgarian born poet, photographer, and composer of films.
L’accord Bleau is included in the collection All Of This And Nothing, available in paperback here.

Our thanks to Erik for sharing his work with Planet Slop.
