Halloween Wish List

Remind me to never

watch The Possession again.

Soothe away my tears

when the Lady in Black

appears in a top-story window,

unexpected and looming.

Tell me again and again…and again

that it’s not real,

the bumps in the hallway

at midnight

when every door in the house

is locked

are not ghouls or demons

or other nocturnal

supernatural

pains in the ass.

I am brave.

I am brave.

I am brave,

I whisper, hoping

to at least

convince my shadow.

So, please,

remind me to never

doubt the power

of a box of tissues

or the curiosity that has me

watching The Possession again.
