go south

ยฉ2022 Michael Raven

in the library of dreams
ghosts attempt
to hold back
southernly walks
in the pouring rain

a long way
to go still
shamefaced
i play their games
and ignore the calling
my fylgja caged

but tonight...?

  1. I was just researching the fylgja for my short story this week. It feels like something I need to write a lot more about. I love how you so seamlessly weave myth and legend into your poetry. Itโ€™s inspiring.
