ONE OF A KIND


Never mind the eclectic graffiti walls
that stretch through the canyons
Halloween extravaganza 
Big Apple Style

Crowds of color
fabric to flashing lights
blinker faces, rainbow of wigs
dogs with pony tails, spider bows
kids squeal from sugar overload
cars dressed in psychedelic stripes
parade of abstractions
banners fuse into 
impressionist blur
Cacophony of sirens, cheers, drumbeat
cops seek to calm the unfeasible
for once
this night dwells in the heartbeat of its people

Another great Halloweeney
A year is an awfully long time to wait for a return
If those are tattoos, they probably cost more than my car

Hello Betty. Well, we had lots of little people calling. Dressed as demons or witches, they were surprisingly shy. Most of the noise came from my other half. We enjoyed it, and the pumpkin soup I made after the poor thing had its innards scooped out. Now doesn't that sound painful :) Enjoyed the read.
