pole dancing for poltergeists

in a haunted house i reside

a sanctuary for the seances

midnight conducted for you

the futile rituals

of a prolific poetess

incense smoldering

graveyard hymnals

prayers for apparition

north – west – east – south

four corners calling

and your stubborn spirit

refusing to appear

despite my desire

for conjuring

you said you’d come back for me…..”

Those who knew her best would describe her as a creature with a clear and sometimes painful sense of herself; furious with ideas and convictions, to a point that she frightened love away with discernment and a relentless strength of character."
