Sam Hains Did Run.
in Mind. Mine. Herein. Begins. Belows.
of Sam Hains.
She had to go.
She had to run.
Night was coming. Rains too.
Tonight. Was THAT Night.
That Night was Here. Now.
Closing in quick, Deep upon Her.
Tonight. Was THEIR NIGHT.
The Night That Devils Dance. Openly.
Grabbing, tucking, pinning Skirt in one.
She Ran. She,..
Sam… Samantha Hain did. Run.
Already near full speed when the Rains misted down.
A New Moon. Though Clouds had closed that in.
Shivering, inside and out. She ran on.
Recalling those horrid Tales of This Night.
How those caught out.
Were so mis-treated.
Things so shamefully done.
Only trickled whispers were so passed down.
‘Twas then, just as She thought of.
She Felt. IT. Close.
Behind Her. Close.
Almost, not quite Soundless. IT. Was There.
Though the Night Cooling.
She could already Feel IT’s Heat as IT
Strong. With Power.
Everybody Knew. Everybody Said.
IT Was Their Night, Their Might.
She moved This Way. Then That.
Stealing a quick glance.
Over and around the Shoulder.
Eyes drawn, catching,
holding in Sight.
A Single Eye. IT.
Balefully, beaming. Her Way.
Wind whistled in Her Ears as She now
so frantically raced.
Whipping, biting. Ankles, Shins
with Wind-spray, Sand, Shore.
Not too far ahead. Just a lil’ more.
She ran. On.
As She slowed, Turning, following the Path. IT
almost Touched Her.
She accelerated those Few, Last Steps.
A Grab, then Turn.
A Slam and Click.
Leaning back against the Door, allowing Mind
and Body to Relax.
Letting what had run, run it’s course. Settled.
Patting and Wiping at Her Clothes and Self. Till,..
The Door Chimed. Did so Ring. Then.
Ready Now. She was NOT going to be
so caught out.
On Their Night.
She So Knew
What was to be next and done.
She Knew What She Had To Do. Now.
Reaching for, then so taking hold of what She
had prepped early.
The Wood went warm in Her Hands.
Just Right. For Such a Night.
She had so just Run.
In One Hand, with the Other.
ever so, slowly.
To so Hear a Howl erupt,
a chilling soulful, yet now plaintive rhetorical cry.
Childish, Pleading. Persistent.
“… HALLOWEEN… TRICK OR TREAT…”
She looked Up.
Straight at IT.
As many Hands made Light Work of the Sweet.
In The Wood-Bowl She so Handed over and down.
One Shiny, Moving Direct Lens. Up there.
She wondered as She so Watched.
Out There still.
That Leading Light.
That did and so.
Light Her and Others Ways.
For the Twists and Turns of a Life are many.
A Life of a Light-House Keeper’s Daughter.
On such a Night.
Late from School.
The Run Home.
On such a Night.
The Night of Halloween.
Took Many Steps.
Ups n Downs.
Ins + Outs.
She Smiled. Now.
She had run.
She Was Home.

Angels or Devils,
Giving and Taking. Life Shared. Communally.
