Ghost Dance

by Aidan Andrew Dun

GD YES

Invisibly
ghosts of ancestors
dance, vague tatters
hung out along
rooftops.

Where white
shadows move
close to the sky
thin bodies dance
live briefly

Work in tandem
with a little wind
pulling the houses
up through sky-
straits of blue.

Inhabited tablecloths
robes of spirits
white-on-white
flap like jibs
belly-out.

Casting-off forever
never-to-return:
ships with sails
fresh with the scent
of beyond.
