Soul Murder

A tradition. Unrelated narratives. A tradition.

Formal lineage and a family. Of that form.
Muted greens, yellows mutated. Muted

blues. Colors absent. Colors presiding—

Of what color is the color
of your parachute?

Of what color is the color
of your parachute’s

parachute? The color of enemy lines.
Behind enemy lines, the color of friendship.

Before. I go further back. Before. I hesitate, I
hesitate, I hesitate. Before. I go further back.

Before. I go on, ahead. Unrelated
narratives. A tradition.

Soul murder. Imagine hearing it.
Calling.

Soul murder. Imagine calling it.
Heard.
