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.

Fairy Tale

In the window-dome, wheel-stripe
the circle, merry merry we all
fall down. Dusty wheel-spokes
spinning and your little dog too.

The ear is flat, the glass cold.
Rain drops there, flattening
themselves. The bone held
through the bars is skinny

like a long lens zooming out.
The details camouflage
the crooks, their fat tears
glitter like diamonds.
is this real?
