The ghosts when they come make a sound

the sound of their chains.

They are sentenced to their chains

they are chained to their sentences.


One by one the ghosts

come with the sound of chains.

They don't know the sound from the chains

and there is no difference.


And the lovers hear the ghosts

that come in their mail.

They hear the chains and know the sentences

cannot be revoked.


They don't know the before from the after

they don't know the lovers from the ghosts.

And the guests hear the chains

they feel them in their mouth.
