"It's true, it did happen.
look at the streets, along the curb, throughout the lawn.
Everywhere, candy wrappers, sticking about, whole suckers crushed in a cloud of sugar crystals, halloween did happen."
Little children, don't realize it until after the fact, the next day, walking to school, the trash is the proof, memoir.
The floating trash, piles of it, civilizations of it, cultures of it, crushed, dreams of trash, lives of crushed sugar suckers.
