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

These conversations are
continuations...
of prior ones,
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.
The ones I find myself most frequently in conversation with are

Frank Conroy

Jerry Leiber

Paula Dunaway

Mary Hanson (Siff)

the recently - 2017 -deceased Paula Dunaway
who was the love of my life senior year
and i had alway hoped that toward the ends of our life we would have a chance to tell each other what our lives had been like

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

Catherine Wolfman
possibly deceased 
with whom I shared extarordinary experiences during the 70s in New York

One grim realization is to have reached the stage where I have a greater number of ghostly

 than living friends and people I was close to one way or another.



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: U nd es sind das, seltsam, nicht die
schon lange Toten, sondern die Jiingstverstorbenen. 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!
