Download PDF by James P. Kain: Conversing With The Spirits

By James P. Kain

speaking with the spirits?
I don’t understand precisely who they are
yet, imaginary or now not, I don’t wish them to stop
The dialog must cross on
For via this act

In another area and time
Aren’t I, too, a spirit within the dark
soaring over another journeyman
possibly you
looking conversation
you will be the reason
