I once met a ghost
with mouth on the middle of its chest
dripping blood, and shooting bubbles
of fire that kept growing in size,
till they circumscribed
me inside their radiant sphere.
Transfixed with fear, i screamed
like a sacrificial lamb
and asked, “why don’t you creepy
things leave us alone”?
The ghost took its head on its hand
and while spinning it like
a professional soccer player,
on the only finger it had
It calmly replied
“homie, i am just trying to make a dying.
I have some voids to feed.”
