ghosts at Halloween

Horror films show evil
but only as entertainment.
Ignorant of their danger,
the hapless soon fall prey
to some insatiable
soul-sucking manifestation
until one clear-eyed rationalist
leads the survivors to safety.

We know life is no movie.
We are not here to be amused.
We see darkly, but we do see.
Your spirit moves over us.
We escape evil's snares.
Our joy sings.
We join hands and dance.
