Where Ghosts Live
We never had a problem telling when George-Albert was not in a happy mood. It wasn’t just the sound of slamming doors Nor yet the sound of shuffling, slippered feet. Nobody told us when we bought the place About the resident that we’d find there. Tobacco smells inhabited the space And told us how to find where he had been. The fact that he was there before we were Had given him the right to stay, it seems. When things got bad, the wife would tell him off, The smells would fade; and was there just a sigh? The time had come when we had to move on And leave the harmless resident behind. I only hoped that, when he’d found we&

Night Walking
She always walked the cliff path.  The views were good in the daytime and at night she could watch the shimmering lights of the fishing boats just off shore.  The lights reminded her of her brother whom she obviously hadn’t seen since that fatal accident exactly a year ago, but there he stood in his oilskins with his arms extended.  As you might guess, at the sight of him, she stopped.  He immediately vanished but, if she hadn’t stopped, she would not have survived the fall down the cleft across the path caused by the newly fallen chalk.

A Great Spoonerism
OK, best I can do for CoreMembers (https://www.deviantart.com/coremembers) competition to make others feel good.  I loved this when Scouse Bob stood up and, without warning, said, “D’y’ hear about the dyslexic Yorkshireman who went to work with a cat-flap on ‘is ‘ed?”  He then simply left the pub, leaving his question on the air.  That’s what I call timing. Probably one for the Brits but, after a few seconds thought, I thought it was funny.

101 - 100 USES OF A RED SKATEBOARD The conversation had been going on for some time but here’s how it ended: “Bet you he couldn’t.” “Bet he could.” “You’re on.” “Shake.” “When?” “He’s always there early on Saturdays.  Before anyone else is around.  Then he uses the damned thing on his paper round.” “Have you got everything you’ll need?” “Oh yes!  That kid’s going nowhere.” “Sez you.  Right.  See you then.” “Don’t forget: a fiver we said.” “I won’t forget but I

Tarot
I am the lost and final hanging man, That love worn card you deal beneath the root. You place me on a dark and looming land With a gilded noose slipped around my foot. Silver coins tossed, betrayed against the sand, A final kiss that finds its way to roost. And you shall eat and swallow all my sins And spin the earth where simple men begin.

New: Control What You See With Muted Tags
DeviantArt takes pride in being home to a vast majority and variety of art, from the mainstream to the very niche. However, not all deviants are into the same things. In an effort to give you a better experience and more control over what you see – and what you’d rather avoid – while browsing through DeviantArt, we’re introducing Muted Tags in DeviantArt Eclipse. You can now create a list of tags and topics you wish to be excluded and hidden from your Browse and Search results. Important note: Tag muting does not affect content on Watch and art posted on other deviants’ Profiles. To set up your Muted Tags list, follow these steps: Hover over your Profile avatar in DeviantArt Eclipse Click Account Settings Select Browsing Under Muted Tags, start typing the tags you want excluded (you can choose from a pre-populated list) You can add up to 100 tags! Once you’re done, click Save. Please note that muting tags can take up to 10 minutes to take effect within your Browse & Search results

Look a Second Time
the last remaining nail holding our hot-orange saucer full of sun above us is about to let go and, as the drywall cracks, i’m back to boyhood and my grandfather sits across the breakfast table, train noises trailing from the corner of his mouth; he looks past me tracking something, left to right in the window behind me what? oh, it's the little train, runs 'long the sill' i turn around and i’ve  missed it and soon as i return to my plate wait.. (a distant) woowoo fades right missed again; how i wish i still wanted to turn around and look a second time that table’s now likely lonely in landfill quiet, the window sold house
