After the Exterminator, Joseph Farley

I still hear ghosts
running in the walls
on all fours,
feel a soft something
brush against my toes,
see small shadows
crossing the floor.
why should my sleep
be so nervous
thinking of the dead?
Enough was paid
for their burial,
plenty of coppers
to cover
all those small eyes.
