When I was a very very little girl, on a spooky Halloween night, my two aunts took me trick or treating. No street lights on the road. Bumpy cement side walk to trip on. The sky was pitch black, no moon, no stars. The dimly lit homes were set way back from the road. A few cut pumpkins with faintly glowing eyes lead me to the porch. The winds were howling and I was cold. And as I said, I was VERY VERY little. VERY VERY little and VERY VERY scared
All that I remember from that fearful night long ago was bloody bones!
Was it my aunts or something dreadfully eerie from another dimension that WANTED to hold my hand? Two apparitions draped all in white, flesh moldy and rotten, wound about their neck, waist and wrists hung real, really true, meaty-bloody bones!
It was enough to become a vegetarian!
Halloween is a bit different today.
Pumpkins still to carve, they seem to grow larger and larger each season.
Slimy, slinky, sinewy, slippery, stringy globs of seeds.
