TURNING THE GHOST

 

A dark lake, more of a pond really

centre stage.

Phantoms enter

and exit.

I am the only flesh and blood

the only white and pink

in this grey scene.

 

There’s a hint of malice,

a spasm of the waters.

Walking towards the ghost is fear

lifting my head to observe his face,

turning his body of smoke,

face of the Devil, not so bad,

not so bad.

 

I walk over the edge of my dream.

backstage

my own face greets me

in the morning mirror.
