Dickens’ ghosts

I am tempted to recall

the ghosts brought back from beyond

the apparitions, the undead departed

fittingly frightening the life out

of the amorphous, lifeless living,

uncertainty, hesitation, revelation

a ghostly haunting to remind us

that all is not lost.


At least, while we still have breath.
