Rounds

 

The sun fails suddenly
Beyond the standard horizon

Springing dark upon us

Like a trap.

The moon comes out

And pokes around among the stars,

Glowering and full,

As haggard streaks of clouds race

Insanely across the foreboding apparition.

Quietly, we put on the masks,

Bringing our fears to the surface

In these horrific plastic expressions.

Bravely we clench our paper bags

And go out into this crazy

Halloween night.

Miniature spirits, imps, wildlings

Of questionable nature.

Friend or foe? Fearsome or funny?

Solemnly we collect

Our various booty with some risk,

Making the rounds of the neighborhood,

And tracing our small anger on the windows

Dark and empty against us

With crayons of pure soap.

Then race home through the whirling leaves

Scared silly and laughing, anxious to

Eat the treats and tell the tales

Of our treacherous tricks

And the stalking goblins

Sifting through the shadows, at our heels.
