ghosts

old habits die hard
when filled with purposeful nostalgia
it’s not easy
to forget to remember
more difficult still
to remember to forget.
ghosts take up residence
and i neglect
to ask them to leave
i grow accustomed
to the fall of their footsteps
on my neural pathways –
almost silent,
but not quite.
