‘Tis the season

Money falls out of my corset

but i dont know if its worth

the marks that it’s left

just like if i placed

the jack-o-lanterns

by the window

they’re so pretty but

what if they caught

the curtains on fire?

 

i hide in the crawl space

behind the witching room

in between performances

and when they ask me

if im ready to go on

i always say, “Oh, please

let me have a drink

of water, or you know

if you’ve got something

stronger…”
