A Former House

December 11, 2015

Santiago Caruso “Spectral House”

We had no mirrors in that house because
There were no faces there for mirroring.
We were the last of an incestuous line
Who raised the dead by looking at each other
In table tops and spoons, a family
In love with its own ghosts and origins,
Homeless at home with nowhere just next door.
