*halloween Stroll

Crackle, crackle
Dusty shadows
Crunch and cackle
Follow hollow
Pounding footsteps

Cracks of thunder
Broken branches
Over, under
Snap and scream
Spooky Doppler

The Big Bopper
Sings Chantilly lace
And a pretty face
But I digress
As trees undress

On this unholy
Wooded path
To who knows where
I stroll and stare
At the murky water

The misted river
Seems to swerve
Around the curve
Of my pretty neck
As I do swear

This wretched dream
Will be my last trek
Unnerved through this
Forest preserve
On Halloween
