Hangman | by Sarah Alison

What do you say to a ghost at the door?
Even if I don’t answer, it finds a way in

‘”How are you?”
“Weary. A little horny. The usual.”

Do I invite you in,
And remind myself what you’ve made of me?

It’s simple
I’m the jacket, you’re the coat rack

You’re a part of me that I will never get back
