hallow
tree halloween
here

paint my face
like some sad
clown leading
a menagerie of
broken things
and misfits

ashes to ashes
in the hallowtree

we laughed once
-- i swear we did
grinding the guitar
strings like bats
on the wing and
we would sing
we would--

set to ice on
open water
begging
to be washed clean
paint my face
just raw meat
an eighteen
halloween
and the hallow
tree me
