The Girl with the Blue Hair

Darren Cole – Deakin University


That’s the first thing I noticed

Never mind the entrancing smile

Or the hypnotic green eyes


Like the untouched pond in the forest

Or the freshly cut sapphire

Set into the necklace around her neck


In a shade that seems so familiar

I think I’ve figured it out

She is the Tardis.
