Dikt; "One need not be a Chamber—to be Haunted—" av Emily Dickinson

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
Far safer, through an Abbey gallop,
Ourself behind ourself, concealed—
The Body—borrows a Revolver—

External Ghost
Than its interior Confronting—
That Cooler Host—

The Stones a'chase—
Than Unarmed, one's a'self encounter—
In lonesome Place—

Should startle most—
Assassin hid in our Apartment
Be Horror's least.

He bolts the Door—
O'erlooking a superior spectre—
Or More—
