  3. Here’s my contribution!

    All The Devils Were There

    I used to dress in bakers white
    and take a basket of bread
    to Halloween parties.
    I never found many takers.
    Spiced pumpkin,
    apple cakes
    and candy
    were always more popular.
    So I had a re-think.
    Now I take a basket of babies.
    They can’t get enough of them
    all of those devils out there,
    even those who come as angels
    gather round for a bite.
    Just one bite will transform them
    so they’ll leave as devilish
    as the rest.

  8. Halloween, Age 15

    The full moon rose
    like the Great Pumpkin
    my little brother
    went begging as a hobo

    I bullied candy
    snuck out to meet
    some fellow teenage boys
    under that same moon

    High in the sky lighting
    our swath of destruction
    through the neighborhood
    a late autumn tornado

    I still revel in that glorious sight
    of toilet papered trees in the moonlight
