...a flight of fancy...

As we gear up to happily meet
the chill’n thrill of that notable night
let’s take a look... at the liable
the obvious
the cryptic
the arcane... serving as an apt title
according to the myth
the legend
the poised
the cultured
the sophisticated minds
and prepare... for this time of black magic
customs... wont... fiendish men
and wandering ghosts...
 
Zombie proof the window first
then render the doors
impervious... to creepy death
visiting a haunted house... teasing
mocking... otherwise brilliant heads...
 
Insight the smiling golden pumpkin face
shining with a spirit
of ghoulish metaphysics on earth
place a sign: Not trespassing!
No goblins
neither immortal vampires
nor merry shadows
taking vengeance on us...
 
Are we really safe now?
 
With no limit to fears
to dark... to dread...When minds
filled with spooky and scary and fright
are screaming their hearts out!... Shouting loud:
 
What about the pet-flap entry hole?
 
Is it featly sealed... to ensure
it can’t be breached
by some cunning
neither living nor dead
wraths!
 
Relax. Value your peace of mind!
Keep one wary eye out
don’t let your breathe
and your concern’s eerie cause
go amiss...your
imaginary lapse from
dusk to dawn festive carnage
obscure your fun... It’s
a Halloween Night...a memento mori art...
a touch of Goth!
 
The trick and treat knocking at door
begging for eternity candy never ending demand...
 
the unwise spending
on a stash of freaky-fetish brands
 
the sparkly red dress taking to streets
in that Danse Macabre roaming
with an ultimate madness...
....dancing with Death...the trance state
 
to mingle with Goddess Nox halos arising
from the sea in a chariot by two horses...
 
the torment waiting for cockcrow sound
to send souls scuttling back to graves
 
the tap on shoulder... goose bumps rehearsed
by mortals... and in depth... benumbing nerves
 
and the  time of fastidious intentions
to be prepared... for this frightening fun
pumpkin pies and theme partying
well into the wee morn hours...
 
Whoa! Let’s slow the flight of fancy... now
for... all is in our minds...with
more savvy eyes...look past
the trick'r treaters sweet business
niche for...Boooooo-ming Halloween retail sales!
