Friends, in Color

Friends acquire color
from each other. Affection
generously renders it –
extends the flow of it
from where their minds are
meeting – circumambulating
all the upper spaces:

often with a predilection
for bright red, which
threads in calligraphic line
around the shoulders, skull
and spine before it radiates
away as if to spin its gladness
out to duller, paler faces.

Eventually color will imbue
the whole – travel through
the body to the core
that color is the proof of: soul.
That accounts for most
of all the glow in me and you.
Soul is made of hue.
