In Ghost Walk, Anton Pooles develops a mythology of self in order to give substance to his undetermined origins. He does so through the lens of parable in poems that present strange creatures and uncanny phenomena, positing that "all children know the orphanage is alive." Both spare and dreamlike, Ghost Walk is a poetic triumph that manifests identity through art.
