Halloween Poetry-2016

The Wrong Side of the Sky

“Childhood’s Halloweens”, by E. W. Bennefeld. Written for and published in the 2016 SFPA Online Halloween Poetry Reading.


“Childhood’s Halloweens

It’s that time of year
when monsters peep
from closet doors
and gather round
from underneath the beds

to find out if you’re ripe
for different sorts of
new adventures.

Hunter, once again, this year?
or Hunted?
