The guests don't know right from wrong.

They dont even know right from write

or wrong from wrong.

They don't know the different from the same.


The ghosts have no sense of themselves.

In mirrors they see only empty rooms

or else the solitary guests

in their chairs.


The guests can't see the ghosts

they don't know the ghosts from themselves.

The ghosts are not the guests

but no one knows this.


The ghosts are the guests

after they leave. Both the ghosts

and the guests are gone, eventually.

All outstay their welcome.
