If the light in you diminishes, wanes,
and you become a shrunken version of yourself,
be sure of this-
Ghosts are feeding.
If confidence gets tugged into the nearest pit,
and mockery replaces spark-
cynicism having leaked its silent poison into your veins-
ask not what is wrong with you
(a honed Ghost hunting tactic)
but sharpen those warrior skills to track,
and disarm the immaterial and deadly spooks.
You can start by slapping a sign
on the inside of the front door saying,
Ghosts, piss off!,
while laughing at their familiar, but fruitless, methods.
