GHOST

GHOST OF HISTORY LIES DOWN BESDIE ME

The sign said:  No Jews Dogs Negroes

Public bathrooms  at the beach  1941

Toronto   Rows of boys in classroom

London Ontario 1931   The one in the

back row  Black hair  blue eyes   Sea of

blonde   Runs & runs   Some days outrun

Puts up dukes

__

 

You’ll be dead again tomorrow, but in dreams

you live. So I try taking you back into morning.

Myth   Natasha Trethewey  2006
