“On a theme of ghosts and spirits”

From a distance, I mistook the building for a distillery,
but on getting up close, I discovered it to be –
just another crematorium,
– the only difference being that instead of leaving in barrels,
the spirits were making their escape,
via the chimney.

So I designed a chair for the ‘Ghost of St.Arck’,
and set it in the memorial gardens,
amidst a sudden apparition of phantom flowers,
– and consoled myself that, if not a distillery,
this was at least, – ‘le crem’ de les crems’.
