TALKING TO GHOSTS

TALKING TO GHOSTS

A while back I found myself in conversation with certain departed friends + I realized that I had reached the stage of what I call


TALKING TO GHOSTS
and that there are far more ghosts to talk to than living friends or former authors and co-workers of all kind.

These conversations are
continuations...
of prior ones,
emendations
arguments
corrections
recriminations
apologies,
instances take the form
of wanting to make amends
but
in the underlined instances -
if you think of these conversations
in novelistic terms -
they
could be days if not weeks long,
the German word
ausufern
=flooding, breaching of dikes=
comes to mind and there is a novel of a unique kind buried in that idea and buried it will remain since I have volumes to complete but dwell on the notion of some of these conversations then intersecting since these friends in some cases knew each other, or become more closely acquainted in this domain of the imaginary.

The ones I find myself most frequently in conversation with are

Kurt Anschel, the closest Oakwood School Friend

Frank Conroy
a close friend until he cut out to Nantucket

Jerry Leiber
a near father in law!

Paula Dunaway
I had hoped that the recently - 2017 -deceased Paula 
- love of my life senior year in college and for nearly another year at Stanford -
  toward the ends of our life would have a chance to tell each other what our lives had been like since last we saw each other in the mid 1970s

the 2016 deceased name-cousin Lee Roloff
a stellar analyst,
of Jungian persuasion

Catherine Wolfman
 deceased  in 2006
with whom I shared extra-ordinary experiences during the 70s in New York


first a quote from Handke's 
DIE UNSCHULDIGEN 
that is entirely apropos
 "Die Toten. Mir geht es mehr und mehr so, daB ich sie anrede,
im s tillen, die Toten: Und es sind das, seltsam, nicht die
schon lange Toten, sondern die Juengstverstorbenen. Und ich
erzahle ihnen dann, was der Fall ist, zahle ihnen den Tag auf,
klipp und klar. Na ja, weder klar noch klipp, und auch nicht,
was der Fall ist. Nein, kein Erzahlen - eine bloBe Wendung
an sie, die Toten. Aber schon in der Wendung an sie, mit ihr"
==================

Excluded are family members.

Only a single truly hated is among the listed, the monstrous Roger Straus,
too bad there's no Hell, sure'd like to run into him there
 while on my way to a stretch in limbo!
