Self-Possessed

Dreamed 2000/7/10 by Wayan

I'm in a Pizzeria with a girl I admire. We try to Plan
An art event. Big crowd; too loud. An Ancient Man
Leans in. "I am the Ghost

Of the Pizzeria" he claims. And proves: he seems
Solid, yet Diners walk through him Blind as Dreams.
When the Living Fuse

With him, they speak Spookish, acquire Moods
Subtle. Antique. Ironic: such possession-Quirks
Mostly seem a Boost

For he's Sensitive: more Pensive than Pizza
Crowd as a whole. Soon as a Fuséd Man
Bumbles on, the Ghost

Reforms as he was: filters out that Soul, readily
Self regains. Dialysis! The Pizzeria Living may be
Possessed Ephemerally,

But he, fluid, flickering as Koi neath Ripple
Or whisper-bent Candle, is yet Core-Stable:
for he's Self-Possessed.

A ghost in a pizzeria retains form even when others walk through him. Dream sketch by Wayan. Click to enlarge.
