Cathexis

When we say the world is haunted
we mean untranslated
                                    as yet.
 

A “cathexis”
is a catch basin
in English.

A result of draining
“here” off into “there.”

 

Starbucks’s billion plastic straws
are green.

 

I know the leaves are whispering.

Tell me what my mother meant!
