2020-10-25 – These Nights Like Day

musty cavern echoes
for my still
presence

in well candle’d
nook, i brush
the webs

and act the prick
and flick each
spider from
lonely..

moon glazed
pane,

i creak from
my bed

then scatter midst
the midnight
stars..

to see that creepy
longlegs lands
ok..

+++

this night feels
too much like
any day.

2020-10-23 – Hollow’s Eve

this scary year’s
Hallowe’en is
all about

dark indulgences and
much dalliance,

me lost in solitary
ambiance, with
strings
of

pumpkin lights
strung like toothless
stars across my
stairwell,
and..

let’s not forsake
those..

empty
calories
by the bowlful,
won’t somebody ring
my doorbell?

saved my last
mini-twix
for you,
and..

all in hell is
well, if..

you’re not one
who gags

on cloying
smells.

2020-10-19 – Wagons Away!

you torched that
last fudgy
stretch

like a fiery hooved
thoroughbred
riding bare-
back

on a haunted
horse’s
head,

i found a grade A
paper on my
fear of..

grenades

under the bed
along

with crumpled map’s
escape route..

dotted for night’s last
ghoul-drawn
wagon

stuffed past its fill
with miser’s
winnings.
