The guests don't know no from know
but only their uncertainty.
They lie down on the guest bed
uncertain of their welcome.
The ghosts are smoking.
They can't see their smoke.
They lie down on the guest's bed
uncertain if they're welcome.
The guests lie between the ghosts
of the sheets. They come as if
in a sick bed, staining the sheets.
And the ghosts come in the guest sheets.
The ghosts and the guests lie between the sheets.
They don't know lie from lie.
They come to get well.
They can't see they're smoking.
