...and this is very wonderful

here ghosts tugging at me

sharing with me stories in my lives

with details forgotten

dancing in my mind and gut

like demons distracting

from now this growing within me

reminding me of their deaths

taking from birth

and my complicity

seeing clearly who I am

telling me of sins

and how I shall commit them again

and so I did

against yet born love

distancing quieting understanding

how they were to be conceived

in chats on walks and in beds

when they were to be committed

in the safety of an emotions desperation

and pain so cruel

where automatic grappling deceit for love

why they were so necessary

each other together

our centrality lack of control

predetermined and ordained

by their presence in my ghost house

step through
