Editor’s Note: Today’s poem is drawn with the charcoal shades of American Gothic. At moments the mists part and a character emerges, part real part specter, but in the end it is the narrator who is most revealed. Within the poem’s revelations there lies a haunted beauty, subtle amidst its unstable landscape.
