don’t touch the walls

it’s just a tunnel,
a tunnel filled with spiders;
don’t watch the floors, don’t touch the walls
she left the lights off for a reason, don’t
don’t –

ghosts of eras to come
wail and flail
sing the songs of the smoke and coughing
told you not to touch the walls,

now –
here comes the fall —
