Imagine the light at the end of this. Name each ghost that haunts you. What do you see in the reflection of the river when the sky falls to its knees? You take hold of grief, a dalliance with ache, let the past enfold you. There are sacrifices and there is sabotage, they are not supposed to look the same. Tell me about your guilt, the shades of peace, how time goes on as you linger outside rooms you can no longer step into. I want to know the shape of lost things in the backyard of your childhood. The echo of confessions that reach the wrong people. The cornerstones of truth, of hunger, of fear. There are no more places to run to.
