Weapon of Choice

I am being spooked
By ghosts
And I can’t quite
Shake them

They unhinge my level head
And drag it
Screeching
Through barren places

If the world were a different place
I would whip out a stick
And beat them
to a pithy pulp

If my life edges were sharpened
My weapon of choice
Would howl
Oh would it howl

    walks the line between an addiction, a fear and frustration, if a line can be drawn between three things, or perhaps they are all one and the same. the images your words conjure are strong.
