Editor’s Note: The author writes: “I wrote ‘Morning After’ the morning after Halloween. The trick-or-treaters on our front porch brought back my visit just two weeks before that for prostate cancer surgery, the gowned staff and also the slightly hushed demeanor.”

Halloween, yards and windows
 decorated with electronic
haunted houses and plastic graves
 is over, Trick-or-Treat squads gone.
Half the leaves, judging by what’s left,
 red, brown, and gold, have fallen.
There’s something about those groups
 of costumed kids, parents lurking,
who ring the bell and stand there mute,
 no shouts of Trick or Treat!
The world’s changed. Recovery room;
 draped attendants; families.
