Phantom Him

As long as I keep seeing you at night,

In dream, how can this end?

You’re the only one who can take me back

To the river house, to Elbow Bend.

 

What anesthesia drapes over waking minds

That you walk faded in the day,

While in nightly visions, memory so acute

Restores those sparks of you that strayed.

 

Why can’t I expel you now?

In these morning-afters you are gone.

Why is it you won’t stay with me?

And why won’t you leave me alone?
