(Today’s poem appears here today with permission from the poet.)

Georgia Kreiger lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she teaches literature and creative writing. Her poems have appeared in The 2River View, poemmemoirstory, Literal Latté, Poet Lore, Sow’s Ear Poetry Review, Outerbridge, Backbone Mountain Review and others.

Editor’s Note: Today’s poem is drawn with the charcoal shades of American Gothic. At moments the mists part and a character emerges, part real part specter, but in the end it is the narrator who is most revealed. Within the poem’s revelations there lies a haunted beauty, subtle amidst its unstable landscape.
