Two New Published Micros: Ghosts and Marriage

GHOSTS

I pick up a brush or place hands on the keys; the ghosts come out to share.

They’re bored, they’re lonely, with stories to tell.

They fib, omit, exaggerate.
They dream, they yearn, imaginate.

My hands are possessed. Others say I make art.

My beloved ghosts and I know better.

MARRIAGE

We married for the kids. They left; I will soon.
