Poem: Ghosts


Haunted am I
by their ghosts,
not many of them really dead,
but all gone,
friends lost to time,
their life tracks crossing mine
in a wonderful
or sometimes painful connection,
some interwoven nexus
built on talk,
and time,
cups of coffee in the midnight,
the frustrated smile of that waitress at Denny’s,
Liverpool rummy at two in the morning,
story writing
and role playing,
the tapping of keys in the midnight,
building up to some bright moment,
and then
as we all found other moments.

Life goes on.

I salute you,
friends of my past,
ghosts in my memories,
as you grow close tonight,
and I light a candle in my memory,
set it adrift,
and remember.
