s’true

I see dead people
all the time
I can’t tell you
when it began
I guess it’s always been there
scarier
sometimes
I hear ‘em
when I can’t see ’em.
This isn’t some play
on people alive
being dead inside
tho’ lord knows
that too
is true.
It is proper dead folk
wanting to pass
messages
tell
‘Jeannie
I’m alright’
say to Bob
the key is under the sink
one thing
I have learned from this
the dead
have really poor
judgement
memory
it is not possible
to tell a perfect stranger
I have a message
from the great beyond
‘Meg ses:
the dog is with me now’
nope
not gonna
happen.
