I live with a ghost

I live with a ghost.

His bones tacked to the walls,

And his memories sold

To the meat body

Pacing nightly.

I live with ghosts.

Their lamps on my desks,

And trunks on my floor.

Neckties from before 

Packed tightly in a 

Precious box adorned.

I am a ghost.

A hollow idea of 

Unattained ideals.

But this empty room

Filled with joy’s memories

Hangs like baby blue’s 


Happy birthday scarf

Folded like phyllo 

Upon winter’s sleepy hook. 


One thought on “I live with a ghost
