The Tiniest Ghost

In the back of your closet,
far deeper than most
is an old haunted shoe with
the Tiniest Ghost.

The minuscule moans echo
from your tiny host.
Spiders and bugs whisper of
the Tiniest Ghost.

Ectoplasmic shoe laces,
cereal from Post,

Rhetorical Toolbox

I want to write a poem
but which tool should I wield?

Maybe hyperbole, but that would take forever.

Personification? My pen adamantly refuses.

A pun for poetry isn't the write idea.

Slipping in an oxymoron is obviously sneaky.

This is such a wonderfully succinct and well-structured poem. It was the only poem in the whole competition that invoked a clear emotional response from me. I reread it several times and appreciated it more and more with each pass. Really stellar work here!

Powerful, poignant, timely, and I can't get over how great the "band of brothers" and "band of others" couplet is. Well done!
