POEM: "Another Fine Mess"

Another Fine Mess

Then welcome the ghost
who brought the mystery
install in the easy chair
supply with food and drink
put on some Shostakovich
show some recent poems

refrain from asking questions
let it be for at least an hour
you've always felt that right?
do you mean we should be awed?
write the answers in invisible ink
ask her if she wants a shower

watch awhile from the other room
then go about your business.
