The Ghosts of Losers

On this day of the dead, I urge you to meditate on the ghosts of losers.

These are ghosts that don’t even bother haunting.

These are ghosts with such low self-esteem they can’t muster a boo.

These are ghosts without panache.

These are ghosts who hide.

These are most ghosts.

These are ghosts who we would not call extroverts.

They aren’t even introverts.

They are homebodies.

They stay in the grave.

They wrap their blankets around themselves and watch.

Everyday is a bad hair day.

These are most ghosts.
