19 Nov: PA and Q’s Day 19

A Shadow Slips – into the myth of ghosts

It happens.
A visionary tic.

Maybe it’s a memory muscle.
Like knowing the sun is warm.

It happens.
A shiver in your chest.

Maybe it’s my narrow psyche.
Like drowning in shallow water.

It happens.
It’s sharp. It’s flat. A shadow slips.

Maybe a ghost, Mum said.
And I felt someone

walk
over my grave.
