The Facade-A Halloween Tale
Walking the boardwalk at sunset
in search of saltwater toffee
I spied a facade I couldn’t phantom
and heard a vintage circus anthem.
I walked ahead and saw a face
all hideous and taunting me
a gaping mouth without a voice
curious, I made my choice.
The ticket seller’s booth was dark
behind the heavy curtains-light
goosebumps raised upon my skin
with shaky hands, I peered within.
Before my eyes could clearly see
claws and teeth attacking me!
Everything went black and then-
woke up by my cat again.
