At the End of the Long Summer by Marianne Szlyk

Callie, like a ghost,
walks on my chest in the dark.
In the light, she is

a husk curled up on
my lap, as small as a bug,
a dried poppy

that could shatter
at any moment.





Marianne Szlyk is the editor of The Song Is... Her second chapbook, I Dream of Empathy, was published by Flutter Press.  Recently her poem was selected by Red Bird Chapbooks for its Weekly Read.  She encourages you to send work to her magazine.
