Change of Ghosts

––by Miguel Angel Flores


I look without seeing

into the darkness of my room

toward other eyes

that look without seeing me

and I will keep looking at them

until the fatigue that extinguishes

will flare up and dance in another space:

a ghost of the room that I know

will see and touch my quest of this night
