This is the cute, short poem, "Antigonish" or "The Man Who Wasn't There", inspired by reports of the ghost of a man roaming the stairs of a haunted house in Antigonish, a town in Canada's Nova Scotia province. It begins:
"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..."

Gripping. Tangible. Entertaining!
I liked the contradiction of wanting to send away what you cannot control but remains ever present.
This is another excellent interpretation of prose. K. Anderson Yancy has a unique ability to capture and deliver the message of a story in a manner that makes it come alive. He is a master of intonation and timing. He has a skill and style command that reminds me of the way Sinatra can phrase a song with his own unique timing and emphasis.
