Liquor of Lament: My Glass Is Half Full

children become

strange words

like rain expelled
from the fat belly

Halloween Poems
It's Halloween!
Michael R. Burch

If evening falls
on graveyard walls
far softer than a sigh;

if shadows fly
moon-sickled skies,
while children toss their heads

and, Walter Mitties, woo the Muse
with reprimands of Dr. Seuss.

“We will walk taller!” said Gupta,
sorta abrupta,
hand-in-hand with his mom,
eyeing the A-bomb.

“Who needs a mahatma
in the aftermath of NAFTA?

The store had not been here yesterday

Drapes were hung from side to side
The windows all were dark

The pen garnished by the flame
Like a sea no desire knows

I confess between the lace
Of time and every sorrow made

His face imprinted 
hidden under layers of ink
he whispers his words

like a haunting breeze
dust blown off the pages
towards the back of their minds

reminding them of stories 
they are eventually, all souls
