A ghost on a ship scares the birds,
A ghost on a ship watches for bergs.
A ghost on a ship has no words,
A ghost on a ship still loves their work.
A ghost on an island watches the crowds,
A ghost on an island wanders around.
An invisible rope tethered to the ground,
Left alone in their hometown.

Patterson writes, “I’ve always had a knack for writing and the short and quick format of poems have allowed me to write without worrying too much about finishing a project. I’ve written short stories, but I feel more confident in my poems as they material was written with more belief and emotion behind it than the stories.”
