MY GHOSTS

 Sarah Vandervennet

 

please keep my ghosts refrigerated

if they spoil they’ll haunt you ad nauseum

my ghosts move like fast moving zombies

my ghosts move along walls like mice

in fact the mouse poop under the sink

is actually ghost poop

my ghosts are perennials

they always come back to me

my ghosts glow like personalities

my ghosts cause minor discomfort

to those who post too many selfies

sure, my ghosts are down to grab a drink later

they’re fine with going to work hung-over

my ghosts want nothing to do with politics

and everything to do with improprieties

my ghosts have wiped their past

living selves from the internet

because they don’t want you to google them

because they don’t want to be remembered
