my soul song is the
tea kettles whistle
it expells steam like spirits
and we all wish
we could banish our demons
so easily

these walls are held up
by kind ghosts and curious ghosts
they make a house a home
if you let them

why do you think
the sight of a newly vacant lot
is more sorrowful than
the childrens vacant eyes?

we all carry water vapor inside us,
things that tie us down
to this concrete ground

but we are not tea kettles
and my lips
cannot form the whistle-notes
to expel ghosts
so i carry them
we carry them
your life force is just hand-me-down life given by those who lived before you, say thank you.
