BEAT to a PULP #124: Ghost by Keith Snyder

From Gerald So:
I first read "Ghost" by Keith Snyder as a submission to The Lineup: Poems on Crime. Having talked with Keith at a reading in New York City a few months earlier, I invited him to try poetry, and he came up with a truly haunting narrative poem that makes intriguing use of multiple voices.

"Ghost" went on to be scored by The Lineup's four co-editors and narrowly miss the cut for our fourth issue. However, when David asked me to suggest a third poet to round out BTAP's week of poetry, Keith's poem was still on my mind. David approved, and here you have it.
