HALLOWEEN EVERYDAY
By Neel Trivedi

A swarm of fluttery capes & facades

Proceed from one abode to another

 

Some with wands, some with pitchforks

All gripping plastic heads to be showered with confectionary

 

Demanding treats from complete strangers

Lest they charge at those abodes with rancid weapons

 

Voguish tenets would perhaps attribute

This kind of conduct archetypal to Hallows Eve

 

Though they're not fallacious

 

Who could possibly fathom

That I chronicle not the dark festivities

 

But rather, every perturbing moment

Of what my depression demands

 

Always appearing in different shapes & identities

With the repetitious demands of the captivity of my mirth

 

Lest they throw more stones till the heart shatters

And tp my soul till it chokes its last breath!
