I told him that our ghosts
would likely hit it off;
swapping sheet sizes and
of the best textures to apply
to shadows and mirrors
for maximum spook.
I told him
we should set them up,
as a blind date, and maybe then
they'd leave us alone.
I can see them now, hunched over our libraries-
using our fingerprints as their bookmarks,
the echo of our breath as their nameplates.
they're enjoying this.
we must decide, you know,
how late we'll allow them to stay out.
I don't want to wait up forever
for mine to come home and tell me how it went.
I'd welcome decisiveness for a change.
if we're lucky
they'll have a shotgun wedding;
we must be there to give them away
and afterwards we'll tell each other
what a good job we did of raising them.
Should have kept a Rolodex of publications but hindsight is 20/20. Items seen here have not been published before.
