So, in the Halloween spirit, let's begin...
We cursed the dark
but woke the cold plague wind,
cracked summer's crypted spell,
talked the pretty into hell.
And the show begins.
Black cat's-paw on bleeding-stone;
two speakers in a field of bone
bite down a forgotten kiss.
Whispers from the too-full skull
tongue the pumpkin's cut-out hull,
but never the voice I miss.
