Role Model

I have always suspected there are ghosts in my room

when they arrive everything is an anachronism

out of style clothing, speech, and mannerisms

‘remember’, they will so often remind me,

‘when you wooed the loveliest ladies with

the snazziest clothing and the cheapest wine and

they thought you were so handsome, dashing, dapper, and debonair?

we followed your advice and did as you did because we wanted

to be like you. what were we thinking?’
