on the battered pier
fishing for ghosts

Issue 16.2 | 1 November 2016
Excellent! with echoes of Raymond Carver; and that's a good thing. Well crafted.
Putting the key words together, and alone:
Often when we reach our late stages we can feel out of sync with a fast moving world of technology and over-Corporationization, and feel like ghosts before our time.
Thank you for the kind words. Being in my late-fifties in a high-tech job I definitely feel like a ghost before my time. :)
You are still a spring chicken! :-)
I love the delicious nostalgia and echo of sadness in this, Paul!
