"Ghost Songs" by William Pettit is a collection of evocative yet fleeting poems on the failure and promise of language, romance and faith. These meditations on experience and recollection are often stuttering acceptances. Here is one poem from the collection.
One of Us Had Better Go I can proceed North or retreat to from-where-the-clouds-come
(there they are, with a storm)
or you can come South with me at least halfway just to where the mountain is.
I'm sure Tomorrow you'll decide.

Ghost Songs is evocatve, complex and seductive. Poems about love, life, the sea. They can take you to your own place.
I found Ghost Songs to be dramatic and deep. The poems were filled with insights into basic human emotions - things we feel but never really say. It is soulful and thought provoking. You can feel the author's pain and understand his plight. Two thumbs up for Ghost Songs!
