Ghosts in the Dark

early / small nocturnal / to the priesthood /
titular / personal yacht / unexpected death /
early airplanes / wintergreen / flowering plants /
box on percussion / halfway house orchestra /
ships sunk, foundered, grounded or otherwise lost /
space, classroom, gallery, art / surveillance footage /
smoke bomb / refrigerator / corpse / flees

season took home / be used again /
the surrounding mare / the inner walls /
a ghost crater / moonmadness /
the spirit finished / she appeared
