The Fifth Pac-Man Ghost

I had an accident when washing
a hat (elastic perished) turning it into a
fifth Pac-Man ghost… – Cardinal Cox

No one ever asks
Who are these the grim ghosts of?
Spirits trapped in maze

Once aliens played
Earth Invaders: lining up
Blast, from above, tanks

The four ghosts you know
A black fifth, invisible
Lurking and unseen

I never turn blue
I do not offer progress
The mouth can’t eat me

Level 256
Electric purgatory
You cannot progress

Black ghost black ghost black
Ghost black ghost black ghost black ghost
Black ghost black ghost black

Black Ghost
