All Hollows Eve - Poem by William Kofoed

Sitting in the parking lot
in my truck just wondering
wondering what this day I'll see
my coworkers and what they'll be

many today do costumes wear
reflecting what they may not be
hidden desires running free
given liberty on this day

a police woman do I see
as skin tight uniform of bright blue
with the skirt so very short
bright brass buttons call to me

around the corner in the breakroom
wonder woman do I see
with assets so exposed
heart attacks in older men

Minnie mouse does scurry by
big black ears and tail so thin
rushing by down the hall
very quickly lost from sight

a vampire too soon appear
Cape of black but bright red hair
flowing sleeves with fancy cuffs
going to the microwaves

skeleton of glowing green
bones that rattle so fiercely
sitting down food to eat
and I wonder what I will see

candy flows everywhere
chocolate coated everything
endless calories without need
with fond abandoned are consumed

as I sit with pen and write
my Muse is flittering somewhere nearby
ideas thrown upon the breeze
and I wonder what to write
