October and Remembering When… A Halloween Free Verse

October brings

Cool mornings

Birthday celebrations

Ghosts wondering

If they should go

To parties of those

They used to know.

Vampires trying

To remember

What year they were born

And when they started

To learn about blood types

Or stopped sleeping in crypts

Or missing the old days

Of damp dank crypts

Shared with putrid death

Rotted silk dresses

And Rats

Halloween is tame

Compared to the

Memories of the past

Before costumes

When every single

Night was a horror show

And nobody slept

With both eyes closed.

~ Juliette aka Vampire Maman
