Most Ghosts


Most ghosts don’t much get along
with other ghosts:
tethered, when together,
to their fraught irresolutions,

all their solo solipsisms
cannot breathe to misconstrue.
Banshees like to wail alone
to seethe and rue.

But last night they came through
my dreams en masse
as redolent and rude
as passing gas.
