American Ghosts Are Boring

Emily locked me in the bathroom again

even though I reminded her that

SomeTHING is driving space to expand at an ever-increasing rate, but no one alive knows what that thing is 

And no one knows what really happened to Jimmy Hoffa 

or whether  Toulouse-Lautrec is finally happy

But Emily doesn’t care about things like that

in death

anymore than she did in life 

She would rather spend eternity

slamming doors, turning lights on and off, and hiding my keys
