My Mother's Favorite Color

My mother’s favorite color
was blue.
I knew this because
it was the color of the wall
that my mom always faced
when she sat in that chair
in her room so that
whenever I came
in from school
she couldn’t see my face
and I couldn’t see hers
and so whenever I needed
to tell her something
all I’d do was look
for that shade of blue
and there she’d be.
