(on being a ghost)

there is a certain power
to being a ghost. to living
a quiet existence between
the walls of a house. you
learn there is power in
making one’s self scarce.
you learn there is bravery
in not speaking. in
communing with silence. you
begin to see the blur in the
lines where you end and the
rest of everything begins.
to understand we are eternal.
to understand the action of
inaction. the war of pacifism.

the calling to be a ghost.
