THURSDAY: The Enfield Poltergeist


Copyright is held by the author.

When that little girl borrowed
Bill’s voice,
the old man who died alone
sitting in his favourite chair
gained a little extra life,
and even if the whole thing
a real enough fraud
to inspire some books and a movie,
no one can take back
memories tricked into remembering
someone who once was.
