Weather and Ghosts

arriving late out from the grey

rain that is two days old now

I step into the half dark bar

as a waitress who is almost like a friend

tells me the transmitter blew

and we are all running on half power

I want to explain to her that the almost

dark is calming like something

a person can sink into

then wake up from

this new half dark

reminds me about the nights I stayed up late

with the MFA poetry crew

whose ghosts now still sit in these booths

they are the silent ghosts I chase here

as I rehearse our old conversations in my mind

about this writing life and where exactly

we will go from this night, this bar.
