Tracker (Quadrille)


No sign of them for days

then a raven rising above the trees
seen from a boat on the swirling river
leads the tracker
to the bodies of the killers

mosquito whine, black flies buzzing
a homicide, then a suicide
evil turning on itself.

Taking part in the Quadrille (44 word poem) prompt over at dverse. The prompt word is “track”!
