Poetry: Blue Mind by Charlie Brice

Blue Mind

by Charlie Brice

If infinity exists it’s
in an ocean gaze—
blue mind, 
the scientists call it,
where there’s nothing
but water and sky,
where horizon is 
a hazy term,
where hope
is unimportant
as is yearning,
sadness, or joy—
even love disappears
into that blurry beyond
of blue mind,
of it’s okay,
of Lost is the only
site on the map.
