Halloween On An Inclined Plane

On an inclined plane
a perfectly formed marble
accelerates down.

Frankenstein’s monster,
zombies, werewolves, vampires and
Frankenstein himself

stand at the table
watching the marble roll down.
The Loch Ness monster

submerges outside.
A UFO flashes past.
On a far plateau

a Triceratops
fights a Tyrannosaurus.
The marble rolls down.

It feels like it takes
forever to reach bottom
as the creatures watch.
