The Ghost


THE GHOST                                            photo: "Water 2" by Rody Luton



It wasn't just fear

that lured the ghost,

provoked him to lay on hands,

re-voice the sounds of birth.


but also this undertow

inside the body,

the memory of loving people

best when pulled under...


when impaled on their anchor,

a deep-sea hunting for the

sea-horse our water-born bones

still dream to ride.
