The colour blue is important in this inscrutable story. The narrator is being kept under house arrest by a Chinese gangster, and forced to use a poisonous blue compound to paint special mineral fragments, shaped like caltrops. These resemble the only known alien relic, blue mineral fragments discovered scattered around a solar system, in which the narrator played a role. ( )
