“I think it’s always been easier for you when I am far away,” he said, just before I never saw him again. “No,” I replied, “It’s always been easier for you.” When he visits me in my dreams I am only ever just speaking about him. He is never actually there. “He haunts you.” Yes. Meet me in that liminal space between the tactile and spirit worlds, in the space of metaphor and meaning-making, of conjuring and daydreaming, of dance and ritual, far beyond the state of trance, where time and place and memory and creation blend. Could I dance my body hard enough to dislodge you from the ethers just for this one brief encounter? Or hard enough to blur the lines of my own skin and bones, turn myself to vapor and find you where you so restlessly linger? So you can look me in the face once more—the face of your child. The child whose eyes you could not meet when you dwelled among the living. Ghost— look at me. We have unfinished business.
