QUADRIVIUM

Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

Trick or Treat…can you hear me now?

with one comment

I realize tonight that I am cut from a cloth sewn in a bygone era. A little girl came up to the door and held out her sack in a mechanical way, expecting me to oblige and give her some candy. I dropped a pair of Hershey kisses into her sack, and she sauntered off to join her friends.

No “trick or treat.” No “thank you.” Not even a “Happy Halloween.” I do not even remember her costume. I was distracted, you see, by the cell phone pressed to her ear.
