Ghostly sojourns

the exorcist 
is exhausted
the spirits
don’t go away

ghosts are surprised
to see their stories
rewritten
to fit in
contemporary 
moulds

I wonder
which house
or body
will they occupy next
just to prove a point…

just to justify
a stand taken 
back then
a life lived
a passion served
undervalued
understated….

The exorcist
warns the ghosts
-take the next step
do not repeat
the same error
don’t ignore what
Is slated

helplessly
he watches
the living and dead
walk through each other
in unending circles
repeating past cycles

tangential paths
are silent
ignored
undervalued
their potential
under-rated…
