rumors of a kill

rumors of a kill

A Poem by Alfred Kukitz
"

zero breath

"

rumors of a kill



been round


heard rumors of a kill


a man facing down


breath nearly gone


aside of me voices 


talk kill, death, gone from the planet


a good man


at twenty the air leaves his lungs


he’s sure to rot


soul to heaven or valhalla 


been round 


heard he likes his myths.

Thanks Emma,

Lunch today with a friend, upon leaving, overheard a Vietnam vet speak about his buddy getting killed in Nam. I thanked him for his service.

Regards,
Al

A brief sadness of words, Al. A brief life too.. still his parents' baby... At this moment, unsure if this refers to someone specific or if an imagined tragedy...

flows tears.. for sure.
