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.
