A Ghost Drives Onward to the Beach

By Crush_With_Eyeliner

An engine drives
the fist which
pulls - :
no punches.

My memory
traces the outline
of your hips
in cigarette

We were lovers
once an
ocean of time ago.
The phantoms
of your skin
washing up
all along the beach.

    "the outline of your hips in cigarette smoke" Beautiful. I love the simplistic illustration... epic in feel. The title is perfect. Brilliant!
