Real Estate

by Richard Brautigan
From his collection entitled June 30th, June 30th

I have emotions
that are like newspapers that
     read themselves.

I go for days at a time
trapped in the want ads.

I feel as if I am an ad
for the sale of a haunted house:

     18 rooms
     $37,000
     I'm yours
     ghosts and all.
