ghost from the past

Ghost from the Past

A ghost
with a
resentment
has risen
out of
the ashes
of my
past &
being out
of touch
with what
tangible things
are worth
laid claim
to my
butter dish,
even though
I don’t
have a
butter dish
& the
world in
which I
might have
has long
since vanished.


The ghost
is trying
to resurrect
a vanished
world because
if it
can it
will cease
being a
ghost.


There’s
no way
this will
happen.
