91. Blue-eye, archaic: “a blueness or dark circle around the eye, from weeping or other causes.”

I’ve just finished Maggie Nelson’s Bluets and now want to bathe in blue. The little book is a meditation on blue the color, blue the feeling, love, sex, memory, philosophy, paralysis, art, loss, and a bathtub and a kitchen sink. It’s a page turner and more than the sum of its 240 thoughts circling around the idea of blue.
