With Ghosts

With Ghosts is a collection of twenty ekphrastic vignettes, an experiment of communication across and between generations. Matthew Schultz distills poetic memories from the abstract visual compositions painted by his four-year-old son, Arthur. This series of prose poems wonders at the possibility of speaking about our past and future selves, indeed to them and with them––like a game of telephone connecting text to image, childhood to childhood, father to son.
