Anna Suarez

A PHANTOM

Grasping-

the sharp sounds & 

the little stars 

gold dust and fire.

 

My fingers move to him

and suddenly it’s my whole body. 

 

Bite a pill in half

rose shimmer 

ascending from

my chest. 

 

yet battle,

light to blindness. 

 

my truths 

the steady streams of

moonlight 

reflecting on the ripple

 

ever changing,

 

rising from

the weeping willows

& into celestial

cemeteries. 

 

In the early morning

light reminds me 

of my infinite lives

& Autumn, the 

sweet phantom.
