Ghost in Girl Costume by Manuela Williams

Ghost in Girl Costume by Manuela Williams

Ghost in Girl Costume presents the outward and inward gaze of the female body and soul. Delving into womanhood and vulnerability, these poems peel back the layers to reveal the ghost within the girl costume. A short but indulgent read, Ghost in Girl Costume is full of painful truths and beautiful descriptions.

Excerpt from “I Like Things a Little Off”

“wish I could draw your mouth

after I fill it with

piping hot        nothingness

know when I ask you about


I mean

                        are you in love with

                        my dramatic line breaks

in the same way

sky has become all at once restricting

but also without period

or precision”
