The Friendly Ghost

watchin’ the neighbours
though burn marks on
fanned fingers,

nowhere better to be,
apparently,

but that goes for both
neighbours and me,
i guess,

i watch them burn through
green papers and hide
the shitty sheets,

they’re just as much the
spreading mess,
i guess,

i’d lend a hug, but it’s no help
when you’re the friendly
next door creep.
