When you were little, I may have searched through your Halloween candy under
the guise of looking for razor blades or other
threats to your safety
(hallucinogenic tattoos or LSD laced suckers)
so I could
pick out my favorite chocolate candy (Snickers) or other candy (Reese’s Peanut Butter cups).
that Halloween costumes were not in my wheel house,
especially after a long hard day of teaching English,
so with great dramatic encouragement
and the lure of all of my jewelry and makeup,
I talked you into being a gypsy or a witch
year after year.
I feel better.
Trick or Treat!
I love you,
