Low Unholy Night
(10/31/2020)


demons
and witches

spells
and incantations

the darkness
descends
and we lose
our minds
a bit

over
the centuries
we’ve changed
the customs

donned
costumes

solicited
treats

marginally
externalized
our evil

instead
of raising
the dead

and taking
souls

but still
we look for
the bad
to balance
the good

like opposing
particles
in physics

not able
to stand
a singularity

needing
a hell
to counteract
each heaven

always smiling
at the wickedness
of it all
