Ghosting

…You peel me off layer by layer like a willow

until the last of the wand disappears under your knife,

arise from bed each day with a bit of color in your face,

no longer dreading the never-ending night.

–excerpt from “Ghosting” in Jumping Off the Train by Donna Pucciani (Blue Forge Press 2007). First published in Eclipse.
