#9 automatic writing 

many names like the father


Holy Ghost

different faces for different occasions 

– passwords for everything stored in a secret file protected by more passwords, buried in a vault under a mountain in Switzerland

 elaborate and easy to forget – 

the fingerprints were fake – 

my shadow is longer than you’d think – 

I’ve  seen your passport picture – 

all beard and no eyes – 

pictorial bible  for the remedial kids at the back of the class – big letters and colourful pictures 

– we forget who all this is written for

– the unknown readership in the backwoods and boondocks – 

leather shoes, 

new and creaking like trees bending in the wind, 

bury me with the cutlery

the heirlooms
