2124: I see an occasional ghost

I see an occasional ghost
on my walks [she’s alone
apart from her wraithlike
dog] – I notice her ageing

[ghosts fade] – Each time
she is more transpicuous
[as if light is eroding her]

Forlorn spectres suffer so
[in my experiences] – She
moves with that sadness

which will not vacate [I’ve
read of such things] & it’ll
pull at her insipid essence
[until she is not haunting]
