We're The Ghosts

We're the Ghosts



We're the ghosts,
who seem to ourselves
and each other to be alive,
substantial, here, important.

Look closely. Wherever you are
now, imagine how quickly every
body there will vanish, be

in effect replaced, how fast
the place itself will alter,
how other people feeling real

will inhabit the space and not
know they don't know a thing
about you and me and us.

And not know how soon they'll go,
ghosts.
