Noah Fields

Séance doesn’t rhyme with Beyoncé

[This is a verbatim transcript of a conversation on Tinder]

—I feel a blend of all of my former lives in this life.

—That’s not uncommon. 
Most people feel the echoes.         
Do you still talk to your ghost selves?

—I dream them, so I feel them
Like when I go to bed.

—I feel them when I dance
They take over my arms and legs
And I am convulsed by my own histories.
