Holey Sheet


don’t meet your heroes,

if heroes are ghosts,

you’ll find they are shy

of the traits you like most,

to start with

the charl’tans

don’t even have hosts–

no heart,


no parts,


no spark

to their glow…


No shadowed reflection,

No pose for the lens,

No dewy complexion,

No, ghosts aren’t good friends

–just shades

that can blind you,

remind you the end

of time

on this side

of daisy and stem


Besides which

they’ll vex you,

and hex you,

–their game

to annex

your soul,

since ghosts need a frame

a post in this world

–and the next–

is their aim,

a dummy

for mummy

on this astral plane


so next time

a mem’ry

makes your eyes


be on alert &

make your ears

> listen <

for demonic tones

dogging the


that’s tingling your bones

practice resistance


Since heroes


aren’t heroes in pall


ghosts are for busting,

–not trusting–

at all.
