By Mike O’Connell
ghosts maintain their own
theaters portraying
the living as pointless
unable to take directions
interchangeable starless
zombies bumping into
sets falling down wound
too tight to mumble lines
no one wants to hear
easily distracted by lights
crowding cameras for
unrecordable face time
escaped from mirrors
paused a hundred years ago
making them rehearse
until their feet fall off
the show must go on
