Ghosts (FF 72)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Ghosts, I see ghosts
I don’t even believe in ghosts but still I see ghosts
People that’s dead to me we used to be close
People I’m close to they dead can’t let go
I don’t wanna stay stuck in the past not that retro
And being a sad bastard’s not part of my manifesto
That’s why I’m bouncing thoughts off the glass just like an echo
Hoping you can offer something of balance just like an escrow
Are people an archipelago?
I assume we’re more connected than it’s possible to ever know
Mental rigidity is the enemy
I navigate life with finesse and flexibility
Everchanging is my current arrangement
Gotta pay my rent daily to make and maintain it
It’s precious and finite
When I’m old with no eyesight did I find gold or pyrite?
The joke is probably the first is the second
And precious minerals really ain’t all that precious
The joke’s on me but damn it looks fresh
And hopefully I’ll be laughing on my way out the exit
