The very last ghost before I left was

terrible seeing in fact

because he did not tell me where he was going before

he left

and 

I had to ask about twenty different people

which way did it go?

and none knew of course

nor what I was talking about which meant

the whole streetlight walk home was

a fair bit alone

without knowing where the other part went off to

 


But don’t worry because two summers after he

showed back up

for the space of a letter

so I knew the ghost hadn’t gone back

to where it came from

quite yet

but it still left

me wanting to know where it went if not

here

if not here then where?

(Where, that’s where.)
