Building My Ghost

Got my steel and

Got my iron,

I’m going to place it

Over my face and

reinforce my heart.

 

Install some backups that work—

Better rotation,

Better torque—

I’m building my ghost better

So it works.

 

I’m gonna haunt you for longer,

Haunt you better than most;

Cause I was the first.

 

I’m going to haunt you so good

So long; you might just see me

In the swept-up corner of a room—

No longer occupied, but that

Dark place will be held tender

As you like, and my eyes

Will still reflect,

In the core of each setting,

What you got away with.
