This, then, must be the answer –
an imperfect peace.

Make friends,
or if not friends
then at least cordial housemates
with your ghosts.

Learn to coexist.

Don’t think that you can shed the burden entirely,
nor that you would want to


know that you can adjust the straps
making its weight easier to bear.

For Professor Karlin
