Things You Can Do with a Ghost

Go all the way
up the hill
to the tippy-
top. Hold your
glass hand
still. Pour ink
into all the
corners. Invent
the perfect
circle. Kiss
the friends you used
to know. Hold
your breath inside
the house. Sew
the door with
an answer. See
into the mirror
before you see
yourself. Change
a bone to a bowl
of milk. Leave
a note so the doctor
knows just where
to go, where to open.

I have a soft spot for surrealist writing, so imagine my delight when I read this. :) I enjoyed the wordplay, especially re: "Sew / the door with / an answer."

Thank you for sharing.

is this real?
