The Electric Adolescence Guide to Halloween

The Electric Adolescence Guide to Halloween

I’m afraid of most things, but Halloween doesn’t scare me. Some women I know make witches seem like fairies. Some men around me make the undead seem deep; they live to make money yet their lives are so cheap. In this world real villains are poorly raised children. If you want to see zombies just go to a club. The pale-faced and soulless creatures there don’t notice that hell is just life with no prospect of love.

The Archives

The sun turned its back on me and my blood turned cold. The shoes I wore at the beach turned to mould. My muscles went limp and I lost my tan. The tension I feel is as thick as wet sand. My thoughts are as black as the victims of cops who see people as targets and always get off. Dark like the fact that real bad guys do fine; in this world the heroes get fucked every time. I’ve seen decent women give their love to villains, and I know what teenagers do when they’re bored. The summer is over as winter takes over I brace for the darkness I’m cursed to endure.

The second part of series is the most overtly danceable of all my Halloween mixes, building to a frenetic crescendo and then crashing down violently.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A night void of light like the mind of a child who has learned how to lie and to love acting wild. Who likes tricks more than treats and hates being ignored. Who thinks less of his own life than of taking yours. Conceived with a scream one dark Halloween, he seeks shade from the sun and finds Christmas obscene. With a shoebox under his bed like a grave made for dolls without heads and dead pets without names.

As October persists his cruel hands make a fist and his eyes stay as still as the dead. With a mind bent and twisted, uninclined to resist impulses the rest of us dread. Dark like a crow’s wing, built slight but imposing, he smiles like a figurine. A demon in waiting, the devil’s own plaything, this child of Halloween.

      The Last Thing She Said To Be Me Was That She Liked the Music

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
It’s Halloween night and we’ve all made our plans
Young kids have their costumes, pedophiles have their vans
Teenagers have rage and can’t stand standing still
Young adult’s malaise is turned lethal with pills

This evening once owned by grim ghosts and ghouls
for reasons unknown has since disowned its rules
Forgoing a night meant for fright, blood and gore
so that men can be children and women can be whores

The werewolves, ghosts, black cats, bats and hearses
have surrendered the night to slutty maids and nurses
Just as old fears of dark spirits made way
for a new fear of date rape, of fistfights, and AIDS
of razor blades placed so neatly in sweets
or ghastly ghosts forged from sad soiled sheets
As children we played, now as adults we seek
a night out with our demons every Halloween.

blood is champage
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We were born in a crypt, covered in concrete. Then we bathed in the blood of sheep, the pool was deep. We grew to love the night and hate daylight. We know why you’re afraid to fall asleep. We know what pain awaits you in your dreams. Our minds are dark, our souls weak at the seams. It’s why we watch the clouds and pray for rain; and need to feel a blade against our veins. It’s why we had to learn to love the pain. A split lip, a broken heart, an addled brain. It’s why we move like locusts through the grain, and drink their blood as if it was champagne.
