halloweenies – October 31

10.31.2017

little tigers, dinosaurses,

ballerinas, and princes of yore;

butterflies and dragon feelers

spidermen and turtle lords;

 

batmen, batgirls,

spidermen

and wonder women

but barely a goblin or

a devil galore.

 

perhaps they’ve learned

the mighty lesson

the one that matters

when we all grow old

 

that we tend to

become what we

play at playing

that we tend to become

the masks

we’ve worn.
