Two Poems // Mike Ferguson


ghost

take

ghosts, they’re

hosts to their own

haunting,

wanting some

attention for the

retention of their

myth, as

if they

existed, each

twisted dumb

fake


succubus

this

succubus,

incredulous, asks

when her

men in their

tombs will house

wombs and the

coitus in death’s

somnus be as

fertile to

beguile for a

miss
