for a ghost

 

 

~

 

you're pulling a lot of strings

maybe

that's what ghosts do

play on one's imagination

you're my first

why is it 

that i can feel your waist

and nothing else

are ghosts sort of there

selective

in what they reveal

maybe

it's an involuntary

ghosty thing

 

~

 

if i come 

you'll corporate, ja

substantiate

materialize

turn into something i can touch

otherwise

if vaporish

is the state of being you prefer

i think i'll stay home

though, now that i think about it

to be loved by a ghost

may offer

unimaginably wispy

love

 

~

Ghost love. How interesting. It might be like that erotic style where you are before each other naked and only almost touching. I forget what it is called. I wonder why only the waist becomes known. And Rothko was a good choice. All those color contrasts are like different worlds. Nice.

This brings so many images to my mind:
A ghost pulling strings says much;
it's an involuntary thing;
revealing only what it wants ... the waist;
whether to have it materialize ... or not;
and what it's less like to be loved by a ghost.
To me it's whimsical and profound at the same time.
I enjoyed the read.

And you may find that to be very frustrating.
