Around Every Corner

The dead have no sense of tact, no manners. Ghosts enter doors without knocking. A complicated fantasy of intrusion.

Long-dead friends and family invade my dreams. Their story, being part of mine, refuses to reach an end. They are with me always, coming and going, presenting me with new problems and vexing questions.

yesterday
someone who looked
like you
stopped to stare at me
as if we had a history
