strawberry shortcake & mini mars bars

ding! dong!

creak…
door opens

me:
“trick or treat!”

the person who answered:
“yeah, yeah
trick or treat!”

the individual
haphazardly
tossed the candy
into the bag

i pause for a brief
moment…

… to watch this person
run back downstairs
to the basement…

…before the door
has a chance
to close
i reach
for the handle…

“um, peter
that last strawberry
shortcake costume
was me — you didn\’t
even recognize
your own sister…”

(parents
in the background
laughing hysterically!!!)
