how to hide from ghosts

black salt
hot foot powder
chalk lines and hidden sigils in the flower gardens

haint blue paint
smudging rooms with sage
wearing pendants dripping with essential oils

smelling of burnt incense and
chime candles
chanting mantras hour after hour

mirrors in the windows
glass bottles by the doors
sweeping the dirt outside

all of these things I do
to keep the ghost of you at bay,
but no success

you keep haunting my door.
