Human-Ghost Hybrid Project

Ghost Human is the author of multiple mistakes and six past-date boxes of kaleidoscope perfume. Although technically deceased, Ghost Human has two thousand Facebook friends, only three of whom operate real world machines. Ghost Human was born when twin thigh gaps morphed into a pop up alphabet shop. Nicknames include “Ghum,” “Stan Hum,” and “Hug Host.”


Human Ghost is only half in love with your language. Human Ghost is femme and feral and curves artificial words out of bleating hearts. Human Ghost is past the point of embarrassment. Human Ghost’s areas of expertise include architecture and holidays. Human Ghost is not sick, but Human Ghost often finds itself under the care of doctors. This fuels Human Ghost’s desire for revolution. Human Ghost currently resides in Helena, Montana with a menagerie of pets and a quiet spouse.


  • Praise for How to Feel Confident with Your Special Talents:

    These prose poems are the best kind of revolution: sly and funny, subversive and wise.
