Magdalena Ball #23: Ghost Systems

Ghost Systems

distracted into a small space
the opening pivots
360 on a wednesday

the ghost in my head
won't stop talking
pulling skin from the inside
such stretchy collagen

a side effect of small scale
autoimmune tendencies
to make repetition easier

leave the road she says
such bad advice
though I want her to stay
so I nod encouragingly

transition and stay transitioned
you've been worshipping at the
alter of stability too long

the air moves like wind her breath
maternal, soothing
everything else remains still

I do nothing
let the cadences
rock me to sleep
