THIS IS A GHOST STORY
by KEFFY R.M. KEHRLI
The day the war starts, he’s in a Washington college town at a demonstration that begins with a march. People yell about what democracy looks like and wave cardboard signs inscribed with timeworn slogans. Several members of the university marching band accompany the chant with arrhythmic banging on purloined snares.
