Perfume

Perfume

you attract ghosts

like a catcher’s
mitt attracts a 10 yr
old boy in love
with the game

this world is a beautiful graveyard

you tag me
like a séance
I fall over you
like a velvet crane

pulling us together

caskets filled with love

 

 

 

(from my first book Beautiful Graveyards, Farfalla Press)
