A New Series

I’m going to start writing a series called “Ghost” or something else when I get a better title. I’ll put them up as I write them.

Ghost 1

Delivered to me like on a platter.
with a white napkin in one hand
and the platter in the other,
and she is a ghost, I can see that now.
For beyond her is what I see,
that she is not opaque.
I’m at wit’s end
when she appears,
like a manikin doll
that’s got pain behind it’s sly smile.
And she is the ghost,
because her veins are readily available,
and there’s nothing more to this.

She is the ghost that appeared to me,
predicted in a dream
and still silent,
still nameless with recognition.
And the ghost that appeared to me was her,
but for how long I have,
I do not know if she will be a ghost much more.
