Haunting Ghost - Poem by Chenou Liu

a tanka sequence for Peter De Vries who claims that 'Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.'

in the attic
nostalgia is growing old
to keep
or not to keep her
the big question

upon knowing
I am going to send her
to a rest home
nostalgia stops talking
and starts a hunger strike

I shoot
nostalgia dead
my muse
condemned to the void
between the lines

this white night
an apparition
of nostalgia
my attic ceiling
