The ghosts are in love with breath
but they don't know breath from death.
They write to the guests asking for breath
and the guests breathe death into them.
The ghosts don't know male from female
they only care about breath.
To a certain extent
the male and the female are blank.
The ghosts come between
the male and the female.
The ghosts are the guests
with death on their breath.
The ghosts are not the sheets
but the male and the female
that come between them.
No one knows this.
