spectral

thoughts of you
drums in the distance
zebras climb 
& never arrive

memories
baked in sunlight
until bursting
& tender to touch

i am looking forward
to being yours
your one
& only ghost

  11. Also I jump on the ghost wagon...
    (his?) one-and-only ghost.
    And Lordy, I can not only hear, but FEEL
    beating drums...in the distance, sounding
    closer with each phrase... NICE!
