I hear many stories about ghosts,
and the older I get the more they seem
like minor disagreements about theology,
about which nearly everyone I know
is either bored or functionally illiterate.
As two people disagree with one another
about what one of them sees that the other
prefers to be blind to this forces the curious
onlooker to focus on the unseen, the subject matter
rather more than what is in plain sight - those arguing.
