Blur October into November of Our December

There’s an event taking place
October of the month
-green goblins and dancing
before the November month of All Souls.
In England they celebrate Guy Fawkes
while over here we egg houses
and the church asks for us to be saints.
Let’s go instead further south
and honour the meals
walk in the streets towards our lost
love and relatives.
Better yet – let’s
go to the great patch and wait for
a pumpkin
maybe tell a story to the night of
lost corn fields and never more’s.
get out of September
plan for another December
let the malls grow from orange to green/red.
an event taking place
-ring the bells and knock all the doors
toilet paper on the count of three
full on pillow cases
tripping on
bed sheets…..
