old haunts night restless
an unexpected séance
with their unclear messages 
failing to come through
                           ethereal byways

     whispers without mediums?
                    how do you capture
                          emotion without
                                        an ouija,
         without planchette rattling
       over styled gothic lettering?

i don't know
                                  i don't know
once said
            i used to know

carmine splashed spirit boards

                    -- is that of heaven?
