Night Shivers by Herb Kauderer

Night Shivers
Herb Kauderer

Herodotus said
“We can never stand
in the same river twice
because the water of life
is always moving.”

that’s why ghosts are cold.
Ghosts freeze life
chain the past
around the ankle of the future
an iceberg anchor.

& only the blowtorch
of morning sun
can release us
from our time trapped
in the icebox.
