The very breath of Lanturnacht
does he breathe.
The national colours of Lanturnacht
does he bear.
A secret candy trove
he hides.
A plushie does he offer
for one and fifty treats.

a possessed hat.
A hypnotizing monocle
balanced by his eye.

precariously dangling.
Once a year
does he come.
Trick or treat?
His candy trove
where does it go?
It is the time of Lanturnacht
not the time of questions.
