ORIGINAL HALLOWEEN POEM FROM THE SCARRIET EDITORS

My love dressed as a witch
And she was beautiful.
Her smile gave me a crazy itch,
And the moon was full.

My love dressed as a black cat
And she was beautiful.
Her smile—could I resist that?
And the moon was full.

My love dressed as an old house
And she was beautiful.
I went inside her house
And the moon was full.

I looked inside every room
And they were beautiful.
Her pillow wore a look of gloom
And the moon was full.

I lay in bed and called to her,
“Come to me, beautiful!”
Her bed was made of gold and fur
And the moon was full.

And what had I been wearing?
A simple, ebon gown.
And she covered me in kisses
As the moon went down.

    Vamp

    She takes her tiny tasting sip
    Then briefly shows a pointed tip
    Of tongue to wet her upper lip;
    A second sip. A third.
    She knows where every wound has been
    And shivers delicately then
    Just barely in control again
    She seems less quenched than stirred,

    And then she smiles a sunspot flare
    That burns until the world out there
    Seems dimly lit in dirty air,
    Its colors dull and flat.
    I hear my blood, my skin gets tight,
    My toes go numb, my head gets light
    And dark spots dance across my sight
    Whenever she smiles like that.

    I know by now I won’t resist
    Her flashing smile – that little twist
    That tells me she is sure I’ve missed
    What she can clearly see.
    Whatever I may have she takes
    And fingers it until it breaks —
    And I can’t say why that still makes
    No difference to me.

    Bonnie, Theda, Sadie
    Could make a man psychotic;
    Or so claims Cheryl Sarkisian
    (Forgive my being demotic):
