The other ghost arrives…

~~~

Nobody around

no gold found

a creaking sound

it’s a ghost town!

~

Diana stands next to her corpse

that hangs from the tree

it sways back n forth

how’d this come to be?

~

A haunted saloon over there

abandoned church down a tumble-weed street

faded-blue hotel over here

nothing but nothing for her to greet

~

She steps thru the wall of the hotel

the jack rabbits high-tail it as she arrives

she swoops into the hotel cafe

no service here is about all that survives

~

She sits at a table anyway

in her mind she orders a cup of tea

nobody serves her anything

   and then across the street she sees me…
