And I walked away from the ship 

Because there had been nothing else to see 

In the Garden of Sea

So I walked to the entrance, the gates

of the Blue Menagerie


Blue cats, blue dogs

The menagerie was strange

Blue squirrels, blue possums

And the cages kept going


Blue weasels, bluefish

I had only now felt the water

Blue beatles, blue bees

Now my clothes had been drenched


Blue walruses, blue camels

I had only felt the weight of the water

Blue jays, blue penguins

And I realized what they needed


Blue unicorns, blue leprechauns

The most mythical creatures of all

But not as unreal

As the blue man in the menagerie
