Sugar In The System

After the bag of treasures
works them into a jittery rush,
the children will succumb
to the comfort of warm sheets
while rain hammers the roof

Although a wet excursion
through the labyrinth
of a wet neighbourhood,
excitement protects them
from the damp reality
and a pillowcase of treats
is potent motivation
to ignore such matters

I fall into the vertical world
reflecting on the clusters
of costumed kids and wide smiles
and my own pleasure
of absorbing that energy

I can forget about the serious shit,
I'll have no excuse tomorrow.

I love seeing kids and adults getting into the Halloween spirit. Bad weather ain't shutting fun down.
