Ghosts

There’s a lot being told and said about ghosts,
this photo however makes one thing very clear;
they’re the most gender equal bunch on the planet.
That’s exactly why I like these dark months.
Come on in folks, we say overhere,
avoiding the topic of afterlife.
Well, it’s getting better, but still,
most are afraid of what comes;
next to nothing, from the ‘Ooster’,*
sounds their yearn, 
those that have preceded us.
In life or death.
I shake their hands,
and hug their ribcage.
One day I’ll be 
one of ‘m.
Just 
1.

*the Ooster = the eastern cemetery here in Amsterdam-Oost, it’s almost on the doorstep of my kitchen.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
