“Posthumous” by Jeffrey Eugenides
I like this: write like you (instead of your parents) are dead.
“Facing up to what haunts you and finding a form and structure for it can never be a commercial enterprise. That stuff’s too chaotic and unpredictable, too messy and gorgeous, to fit a popular template. But it’s the source of your originality and may well prove popular in the end.”
These words remind me of Chris Monday and magic.
In a dream more real than his daytime,
a grown man meets himself.
Himself at just ten. With the light
in his eyes. And the world in his heart.
He sets out to explain to his
young self why he’s taken the
road to someone else’s somewhere.
But he can’t.
And in the deafening silence
he shakes uncontrollably.
As the years of an
unconsidered life spill over.
And in that silence everything
Perhaps the ten year old
had been his
very soul in disguise.
Come to shake him
from the prison of his daytime.
