my old blue door is battered
 
by a sucker punch

    I’m with Maggie: Blue is my favorite color, and to see a door of that hue get battered is sad beyond telling.

    didn’t you hear the warning – batten down all blue hatches!

  9. I’m smiling and this reminds me of a book by James Hadley Chase – Sucker Punch. It must have been a might battering! 🙂
