Halloween treat

above skeletal and orange spooks
adorning blackened ceilings,
you and I cozy up
in big leather armchair


you, dashing in hunter's garb
me, sultry in vampire sheath
we listen to Frankenstein serenading
as mermaids echo his baritone voice


under cobwebbed chandelier, 
werewolves perform their magic tricks,   
ghouls dance as a hairy beast plays 
grand piano in pumpkin-fest ballroom


this is the eve of all hallows day, and
everything extraordinary is norm
lines blur as our worlds collide        
the unexpected and deadly, a treat



like your kisses, warm on my neck  
scorching my 200-year old body
