The Narrator of 'Haunted' says...

'Silly names for real people. As if you cut open a rag doll/and found inside:/Real intestines, real lungs, a beating heart, blood. A lot/of hot, sticky blood./And we were supposed to write short stories. Funny short/stories./Too many of us, locked away from the world for one/whole/spring, summer, winter, autumn - one whole season of/that year.'

- The Narrator (excerpt from the poem 'Guinea Pigs', Haunted, Chuck Palahniuk, 2005)
