GHOSTS WALK - A 1913 NEWSREEL
On my old TV sets, ghosta walk.
In pantomime the Kaiser shakes a hand
in double time, with silent talk.
He greets a royal visitor; they stand
in sunshine of a day long past
then, bobbing, jerk across my haunted screen
quick-step, as though to end at last
An infinitely re-enacted scene.
