Question & Answer 4 – GFOTY/Polly-Louisa Salmon

Question 4

I was told never to write of ghosts,
that the cliché only brings the work
a haunting that all the symbolism
in the world could never evade.

……..But you and I, Polly, we keep returning
……..to spectres and revenants, to these
……..cliché ideas my editor would tell me lie
……..next to the moon and nature on ‘the list’.

If your whole world is a succession of
demons, a parade of the demonic, then
what else are you to do but embrace
the stereotype and feed the poltergeist?

Demons are

…………….demons are

our demons

one day a pterodactyl will be born again and show these people what good their demons can truly bring.

Ghosts only haunt if they hate what their former selves have become.

And so I haunt myself so my ghost can finally be at peace.

Answer 3

I presumed

I’ve been running away from my life since this morning I presumed

I regret telling anyone how i have ever felt There were better days I presumed And until forever ends Its hailing outside

I presume I hate myself i feel it in my heart its the one thing i will forever feel

Please tell me that yesterday was just a poisonous dream gone long by a dream where we existed amongst, but not alongside, the blackened souls of those who had once been as pure as when they arrived. I presumed We didn’t need to enter this.

I presumed

When will we go right? Is that the idea? That IS the idea right?

And to think I thought the beginning was the answer for the rest of our splendour years

I presumed

I am old again

did it all go wrong?

I love
excessively long
titles and learning
what others would call
their books. What would you

look deep into his jaded green eyes

whimpering
around
the
streets
desperately
hoping
to
find
theanswertothedeathwhichcausedyourdeath but you kept accidentally bumping into things didn’t you know ghosts have dyspraxia? (by the way Nero coffee is the worst coffee your film sounds Real and life Is A traumatic machine in many ways i hate it BUT ENOUGH ABOUT BOOKS) and people keep looking past you and all you want is to say hi to your fucking wife and kids and she is crying for you so you go and give her a kiss and then she screams and passes out and she then hits her head and dies Dramatically(!) leaving the next door neighbour to look after your kids who you didn’t care much for in the first place but they were your kids after all so you do have the right to turn up unannounced at this neighbours house and shake things up a bit- Thus…………….supposedly HAUNTING people.

……………………+ Jesus
……………………is not my saviour +

……………..Well –
You probably wouldn’t
find it rather very kind
to hear you are a cliche.

Now.

Would you?

The ghost will disappear into

in which this ghost is comprised of.

He will then enter this somebodies aura -and eat at his heart.
