Halloween Poem 2013

missing now, this night
ghoul in mask or made up,
character, creature, hero or villain
all hailed, all rewarded,
to my house and handed candy,
their scare a lie or wink
on world's stage tonight,
waning fall new in my home,
my handful, then they away
across and down yon dead end street,
his house not dark tonight but
lit like visiting carnival,
and they an ardent, careful flow
one way,
my unworthy thought
of all amiss, I dismiss
then provide more sweets,
watch the little vampire
scurry to the unknown house
an open maw
a hurried end.

where do they go?
