A ghost is using the hand dryer

I need to know what it’s been touching.
If a spirit’s fingers can get filthy in the afterlife
then you’d think they could feel paper towels,
maybe it would be scarier seeing them float
above a public toilet’s sink.
Is fried chicken greasier in hell?
Are doughnuts stickier in heaven?
I need to know what it’s been touching,
but it’s nice knowing manners never die.
