This city is filled with ghosts

 

they laugh on patios, you can see

the foot prints, the paths

they walked like glowing pebbles in the moonlight.

 

This melody is filled with ghosts

 

they join you in the dance, the steps

you have traced over until you are at the corner

of a street you do not remember walking,

absentmindedly losing the choreography.

 

This life is filled with ghosts.

 

they come into your house and make coffee.

they gaze too long at your mortality

until you wish your body

was so transparent

 

as the stories you have walked through

their pieces strewn across the blocks,

the song, the walls.

we are whispered into this new land, this old land, whispered anew
i tuck myselves under coffin nails. and then i am the sun like a nairobi fly, burning spine and skin.
The last deer in heaven flees, and Sestu pursues.

Strange Horizons
28 Feb 2022
We would like stories that are joyous, horrific, hopeful, despondent, powerful and subtle. Write something that will take our breath away, make us yell and cry. Write unapologetically in your local patois and basilects in space; make references to local events and memes to your heart’s content. Write something that makes you laugh and cry. Indulge in all the hallmarks of your heritage that you find yourself yearning for in speculative literature, but know that we will not judge you based on your authenticity as a Southeast Asian.
