Aftermath

Whoever murders
jack-o-lanterns
who are you
supposed to be? Is that mask

removable or
were you born
mean? Nothing

scarier than
a question
save a clown.

The Eve

She wears
no mask to honor
those dead—in her own
voice. A preoccupation
with cemeteries may end
tomorrow. Or her identity
will be revealed
by other naked means.
