Bone Prayers

Bone Prayers

Beware Halloween
and the days in between,
when knuckles crack
behind the back
of a flesh-eating ghoul
that sips your soul,
carves telling stones
from finger bones,
Our Fathers and Hail Marys
on calcified rosaries.
Fingers that once folded in prayer
this Halloween beware!
