I wrote this poem first from a beat that came to me one night in bed; the rhythm is what came to me first. I formulated sentences quickly that began also coming to me, to go with the rhythm. Eventually I decided to give it true meaning, and made the poem about the life of performers–musicians, etc. “Blue hue” I refers to the light of the stage right before one steps on. I tried to capture the atmosphere right before a performance, in this poem.
