October 31

Put on a costume before you start to write. Decide to be someone or something you are not. (Don’t fight me on this.) You can be a princess. A prince. A poodle. A puddle. Mark Zuckerberg, a hamburger, Parisian, a soccer hooligan, your mom. Once you get everything set–shoulders squared, hem straight, feet tied on–think about something from your costume’s point of view. If you and your costume can’t agree, write using at least five of these words:foot,yard,back,fortune,game,apple,cemetery, own,underwear,drinking,improvise,sang

Halloween Party for Polynesian Warrior

I put one foot in front of another
just like a game played with my brother
no time for drinking, food or beer
just goofing off, friends standing near
out on a boat not on the ground
a quiet place without a sound
and then we chose to go right back
the front yard filled, nerves going slack
all of a sudden I hear a clang
like cemetery gates going “Bang!”
I jump and run in underwear
I improvise, a bike stashed near.
I pedal hard and pedal fast
Going home, safe at last!
