ghost text (one)

highlighted / highlighting as a method of possession

when I wake up tomorrow, I’m going to fire up that thousand lumen light, I’m going to find a way to illuminate my/that body, so you can see the blood pulsing through my skin. I want to see if there is a ghost behind my chest, more ghosts than my own..

I wonder how many times the sun has tried to sneak past my skin since skin cancer is just stuck light in the skin, just ghosts possessing a legion of cells leaving a legion of pigs..

since I am stuck in skin, I laugh a lot, and I try to elide my personality.

there isn’t anything abhorrent since my sense of a savior is holding my hands up to dry, holding my hands out only to crispy people. I met a non-crispy person yesterday.. he wasn’t very dynamic, holding out some hands to press cntrl+a and highlight the text, but he will maybe highlight your understanding/seeing your lover upon waking.

    (the last few lines really were a jussive to the reader. I do intend for you to select all the text. if you are on a mobile device then you will have to copy and paste the text, but that option does not maintain the whiteness of the ghost letters, which does not allow you to read the white text separately; which is another part I want to mention: I hope the reader will read the black text alone, the white text alone, and the two together.)  my intentions with this piece was to explore the capacity of hidden text. I am curious what possibilities this could have. it makes white space more ambiguous.  (ghosting/ghosted text: how many textual ghosts are out there, whether intentional or not. unintentional textual ghosts are an interesting phenomena; but intentional textual ghosts seem fascinating/grotesque simultaneously.
