ghosts, in smoke

on tightrope bridge of
fading menthol
stick,

this brand-worn glacier’s
passive trick

curls coarse lips with
angry ash,

sifted soothing
strokes,

by buried
treasure hands,

heaped into souring
souls,

on decay of slipped
tongue breeze

past guarded gravestone’s
ghost beach trash
