dVerse — Quadrille Monday 163 — Happy Halloween

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/27/88/f4/2788f475bada08798bec9def25ac35a6.jpg

It’s Monday morning and Halloween.
You’ve called in sick and we’ve slept in.
Rolled in blankets, warm pink links,
muffled crows call through the walls
wordless candycorns heralding day.

Kitchen-bound, terry-robed, I scare
us up scrambled eggs; sourdough
toast to go with fresh-made cuppajoe.
