If you’ve been paying reaaaaaaaaally close attention to my work, you might notice that the title for this piece is a little self referential. “Doppler blues” was one of the lines I used in one of the larger pieces for my book draft – one of the few out of the longer pieces I actually posted to Instagram.
And although it does feel a little weird recycling that line, it does bring to mind something an old poetry professor told me about poems never really being done – just “works in progress”. Any line could really belong anywhere else, and you should never really limit yourself to sealing a line or phrase just because you used it somewhere else. Who knows? The new home might suit it better.
