Something for Halloween

Halloween display


The kids are helping the librarian
with a seasonal display
they keep asking:
is this scary enough?

Witches&bitches
pumpkins&trolls
wizards&lizards
& hungry magicians

Ghosts&hosts
of spooky castles
long-legged spiders
& The Nightmare before Christmas

The librarian says:
Yes and no and
… but what do you think?

Then the kids find a book
in the adult non-fiction
the most scary cover of them all:
a man who cries.
