Black

Felt hats that meet in a point
Gaping wide mouth grins on paper ghosts
Cowering cats hissing from the shadows
Blocked letters on party invitations
Smudged eye make-up and long pointed fingernails
Tiny opened wrappers crumpled on the floor
Crepe paper streamers hanging off gymnasium ceiling
Long plastic capes with high collars
Frosted cookies in shapes of spiders, witches and bats
Silhouette cut-outs taped to walls
Tall heeled boots and fishnet stockings
Shadows of clouds covering the moon
Creepy crawlies skittering across the ground
Swaying couples in flickering lights
The spaces between every skeleton’s crooked grin
For it is All Hallows Night
And the world places on its best finery
Drenching everything in

Black
