Emily Dickinson

"One need not be a chamber to be haunted"

One need not be a Chamber — to be Haunted —
One need not be a House —
The Brain has Corridors — surpassing
Material Place —

Far safer, of a Midnight Meeting
External Ghost
Than its interior Confronting —
That Cooler Host

Far safer, through an Abbey gallop
The Stones a'chase —
Than Unarmed, one's a'self encounter —
In lonesome Place —

Ourself behind ourself, concealed —
Should startle most —
Assassin hid in our Apartment
Be Horror's least

The Body — borrows a Revolver —
He bolts the Door —
O'erlooking a superior spectre —
Or More —
