37. Poetry by Ed Brickell

ghosted again & other poems

ghosted again
in the viral world
of the star-blind

phishing forgiveness
I scroll deeper

alone with
the hum of the house machines
I join in

cities blinking out
the terminals fill
with cancelled people

that time
when I first saw the moon
what happened

worlds we built with whispers
after our bedtime
