Halloween Baby


I’m a black cat
Clawing against
Your pearl white walls.
I’m the mechanic urgency
Of sudden
3 am calls.
I’m the pumpkin
Out on your porch
I’m the witch
In a fairy’s clothes.
I’m the golden leaves
I’m the orange sky
I’m the twinkling lights
And the hollow wind
Passing by.
I’m the shadow,
I’m the chill that
Creeps up
Your bones.
I’m the eerieness
You feel around you
When you’re all alone.
I’m the something
wicked that
Your way comes.
I’m the strange hymns
And hums.
Call me scary,
Call me cold.
Call me October’s
Very own.

(Happy Birthday to Me.)
