Maybe we need Halloween


Because maybe we wear masks better than we wear ourselves.

Maybe we fare better on alcohol than on reality.

Some don’t have to dress up their darkness,

others cross the line of effort.

Some just go to have fun or make body art.

Others stay home and pray that God will protect the souls

of those who celebrate the worthless state of human bodies

after their expiry dates.

But mothers, please keep your children off the streets

because Disney is keen to murder Halloween!
