woah i'm back. was out fightin reality. missed these.

Ghosting

With two Suns come two shadows.
I will have more than one ghost.
Chalk in hand, reaching for the concrete,
my outline shifts, these bits
are ghosts too.
Moments to most people. Remembered by who?

I write history, none of it fact.
Occasionally truthful, in abstract,
reaching for the concrete,
my chalk, police tape line do not cross.
Can't dip in the Styx before I jump off.

I'd need to be pushed.
I like the view from the cliff.
Imagining a portrait of me standing like this.
Hand on my hip, brush in the other hand in the air.
Realisation: can't outline the strands of my hair.

Memory is life after death,
passing to the other side
of the objective subject divide.
Record what's possible, distribute most.
By the time I'm fully transparent, I'll be a ghost.

a million accidents

idk i started with this really simple thing with the three tombstones and the li'l ghost cloud thing, then i moved it into photoshop and started playing with the color balance and went "oh...oh goodness...what is this".  then i started playing with other settings and it kept getting more and more weird, then i tried to make it less flat by idk i guess TEXTURING it with some brushes only they were nearly transparent so that you couldn't see them too much, but then when i started playing around with other settings they became VERY VERY NOTICABLE and welp that's how we got here

also ya mork those things in the background were going to be tombstones but it was kinda hard to make a tombstone shape in illustrator (especially when it's the very first day you've ever opened it and it is all a mystery to you) so it came out very very rounded
