Listen to the mom
cursing the sudden rainstorm 
 soaking her brand new red shoes 

Listen to the child
laughing at the raindrops while
jumping puddles in new boots.

Ghosties and goblins
Witches, black cats and broomsticks
All Hallows Eve comes tonight

Children coming by
arms out calling trick or treat
Hall-o-ween ghosts and goblins
