Abstract: Something Blue is a collection of poems that explore the physicality of relationships. "Light on Lake Michigan," the first poem in the manuscript, explores a mother's suicide by drowning. In the title poem, "Something Blue," the speaker finds out an ex-lover has married and wonders if his abuse has continued with his new wife. "Fourteen" and "Purge" examine the objectification of bodies that today's teenage girls inflict upon themselves. The poems are mostly written in free verse, with careful attention paid to line and stanza lengths and internal rhythm.
