plastering

writing dead man's poetry
I think of the alive too
when spirits dance-

ghosts bridge it
I see those shadows
so Santa, help me plaster myself 
on a wall forever

I like the idea of your being a fresco. I could fancy being one myself, come to think of it - a lifetime of studying other peoples' faces, as they came to see the mural!

Well I think I'd like the idea if I could be 3 dimensional persiodically
flat has its limitations

Nice micro Fiction
