The book of ghosts – Information



THE GHOSTS

Ghosts are strange beings. They live in castles. And in the books. They go out at night and dance on the damp graves of cemeteries.

All the Undertakers have ever seen them, or so they believe. They say their breathing is so mild that they can be confused with rain, wind or fog.

You have to be very careful to feel how the dried flower buds tremble.

SECOND TEXT

TO BE OR NOT TO BE

To be or not to be – thought a ghost – is the problem to be solved.

WALKING THROUGH THE STREET

Walking down the street I came across a ghost, and my spasm was great because a tooth fell out of me.

THE OPEN WINDOW

“Your cheeks are frozen,” one ghost says to the other. You should stop watching for hours through the open window.

TEXT TERCER

THE SILENCE

Ghosts don’t like noises. They hate alarms, sirens, truck exhaust pipes and buses.

What they like is the silence. In the silence they stretch, widen and lengthen like threads.

Ghosts look like words.

TEXT QUART

QUESTIONS

The ghosts

they are made of not being

or of invisible substances?

For each death:

there is a ghost

breathing

and love

They are always

the ghosts themselves

those who come and go

for this world?

And if so:

this means

which may be around here

the ghost of Canterville?

When a ghost

get sick:

it becomes

a soul in pain?

The sadness

of ghosts:

it falls like purple rain

about peoples?

The ghosts are mirrored

in the graves of cemeteries

like us

in the mirrors?

On summer nights:

the ghosts sing

hugged to the trees

com the cicadas?

What color are they

the ghosts

of those who die

to the war?

RAINING GHOSTS

Phantoms are raining

on the square.

They fall

like drops

between the branches,

as caresses

at the ventre rolled

of daisies.

Cau

the suffocation of their cries

on the gray sidewalk

checkered.
