Ode to Halloween

mysticism of spook
an annual crawling through my childhood
the spider the ghoul the vampire the psychopath
dress up in suits of synthetic pink skin
seem, for all the world, normal old humans
while beneath, secret foamings of the lyrically macabre
climb through & net & tangle in their brains
and they wait. in the night
and they watch. through their masks
and they salivate. in anticipation.
