Holey Sheet

don’t meet your heroes,

if heroes are ghosts,

you’ll find they are shy

of the traits you like most,

to start with these

charl’tans

don’t even have hosts–

no heart,

and

no parts,

and

no spark

to their glow…

 

No shadowed reflection,

No pose for the lens,

No dewy complexion,

No, ghosts aren’t good friends

–just shades

that can blind you,

remind you the end

of time

on this side

of daisy and stem. . .

 

Besides which

they’ll vex you,

and hex you,

→their game→

to annex

your soul,

since ghosts need a frame,

a post in this world

–and the next–

is their aim,

a dummy

for mummy

on this astral plane.

 

so next time

a mem’ry

makes your eyes

~glisten~

be on alert &

make your ears

>listen<

for demonic tones

dogging the

~frisson~

that’s tingling your bones

practice resistance

 

Since heroes

ephemeral

aren’t heroes in pall

and

ghosts are for busting,

–not trusting–

at all.
