Standing Definitions, Current

On Ghosts, Conceptually
Ghosts that haunt certain still existing buildings
are called host ghosts.
Ghosts that haunt still existing buildings
that get knocked down
are called post ghosts.

On Ghosts, Textiles
The fastest way
to make a child-friendly ghost
is to cut two holes
approximately one-eye distance apart
out of your sister’s cleanest cotton bed sheet.

On Ghosts, Liquidated
The fastest way
to make a fluid and living ghost
is to take anyone you know
and wring the ephemera
out of them.
