All Hallows Eve

a rusty noose

haunting O’clock
unclad skeleton
on the swing

the orange pumpkin’s
evil grin

dark imaginings
fairies and witches
begin wilding

gory frogs
in a witch boiler

the horn man
tailing the night
appears with a fork

a red tongue
ready to feast

nowhere to run
look out Xristy
two dwarves

in the dark room
waddle and amble

a watchman opens
the gate to strangeness
dark festival



dark travellers
delight the witches

…ravens circle
the spooky

night of the hollow

the witchity
on the broom

racing heartbeats
the headless horseman
gallops faster…

the chill of being

bat infested sky
the witching begins
in unholy terrain

the haunted

unlidded eyes…
a band of elves
stirs magic potions

the sorcerer
casts spells

a whistling
seeding nightmares

the soul

a black cat
carries a lantern
walks on two feet
