Antigonish

"Antigonish" is a poem by American educator and poet Hughes Mearns, used in the neat thriller, Identity. The first four lines of Antigonish haunted me for days. Came across these lines again yesterday in a blog and couldn't resist putting them here.


Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...



Yea, I know. Awesome's the word.
