Scientists open many bodies to please the skeptics, like fathers proving there are no monsters hidden beneath the heart's sticky bed. No soul. No ghost. Just organs in metal pans. Serial killers open many bodies to please themselves, like sadists proving it is not flesh that screams, but the heart, the soul, the ghost. Not the organs in metal pans. Have you lost your mind? Can even you find your mind? How can something unfindable die? Ghosts are no more real than mind and linger behind it in the same void. Ghosts open many bodies. 9/23/2018 Ghosthunters and Spiritualists Contest, hosted by Kevin Shaw
