three for a dollar (20170717)

candles flicker for obvious reasons

birthdays, farewells, power outs,
supplication to saints
checking that canary you
carried down into the coal mine
homemade bikini waxing
sealing someone’s fate with a signet
pressed into a blood red blob
but mostly the presence of ghosts
