Weekend Writing Prompt #236 – Billie’s Blues

Written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt Blue (38 words)



Gardenia in her hair
Silver gown shimmering
The lady sings: Am I Blue?

Sorry, love, you’re black
You can’t sit there
Or use that entrance.

She’s gotta right to sing the blues
But belts out Strange Fruit instead
