Happy Halloween! An oxymoron?
Although one's dread and pleasure might appear
Like fantasy and truth to clash, therein
Lie the close-knit twins of fun and fear.
Of course one savors fear through fantasy,
Willing to enjoy it as a truth
Each plays with in the endless play of me,
Embracing the full repertoire of be,
Needing night-worlds brutal and uncouth.
