Make yourself at home

When you go to the toilet
you need to lift the door handle up to lock it.
There’s no hot water in the bathroom sink
so got to the kitchen to wash your face.
Avoid that floorboard.
The numbers on the radiator in the spare room
are the wrong way round.
Do not use the light switch on the landing.
Ignore the ghost that looks like every single
mistake I have made while I’ve been awake.
There’s milk in the fridge.
