The Other Side of Halloween

I see them all

One glimpse at me—they flee.

A dimpled witch fakes flight.
She cackles loud enough
to crack the night.

They’re all in groups

to share this evening
so special to me,
as no other can ever be,

This night when bogus demons
cavort with glee.
Here none of them are real

Except for me.
