Sitting with Ghosts

Sitting with Ghosts

I am sitting with ghosts today.

They are the company of writers, I suppose.

Door-to-door, some come calling

with stories to sell.

Others, like these,

bear witness to memory

so that I might find salvation.

In their presence,

I put words to paper,

and pray for absolution.
