"ysgrifennwr scynt" says his piece

***
Sam Hain
I've never noticed halloween before
well - not much
part of the gap until christmas
not long after the clocks go back
a dark time
usually cloudy
and the kids a bloody nuisance
on the doorstep
we used to give them sweets
but they looked at us funny -
grimaced
so now they get coins
it's not too bad
just three quid a year -
these days
sometimes I stand out the back and stare at the moon
