Fast Times at the Pop-Up Halloween Store

Parents at the Halloween store
shop with children expressing outrage
about little-girl costumes like sexy
princess and sexy police officer

But Dad doesn’t mind another Dad
checking out his wife’s ass
as she reaches for sugar masks
flips through packs of stockings

Couples revolve in a surreptitious dance
whispering in code about trick or treating

Actually I think I could ramble much longer on this topic as I have observed so much and it makes me laugh. Maybe I’ll do that later in November as guess what, friends? It’s November the first! And that means I’m writing 30 Poems in November to benefit Center for New Americans!

This is my fourth November writing mayhem for a good cause. Every year I whine about how I can’t imagine accomplishing it, and this year is no exception. But I can do it, especially if you cheer me on! Go Marian, Go Girl, YOU CAN DO IT! Love to you, my friends!
