Anyone in your past for whom you’d drop everything?
An echo beckoning from any quarter of your globe? Be honest.
Recurrences of absent people’s faces, forces, powers to charm—these séance chimes—
why do they sound?
The silver tintinnabulation as beauty unmuffled by time pays a holiday call—
how can you hear and not answer?
Go walkabout among the sere overgrown sites of old flames—douse your ghosts with cups of sacrificial dream-blood.
It’s become a custom.
