Harvest of Souls © 1997 Tom Romeo

In the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church, November 1 is celebrated as All Saints Day- a day to celebrate and pray for the intercession of those who made it into heaven on the first try.

In yellow glow
of Lunar pull;
as mournful spirits pray,

with senses sharp
and conscience dull
I turn my back on day.

Tonight I dance
to harvest souls;
court demons openly,

and seek sweet bribes
from treat-filled bowls
through threat of trickery.

I partner my shadow
and follow its lead
embracing a darker side;

waltz into places
where evil breeds
and allies of hell reside.

Finding myself
on this long night
in the company of sin,

I turn my back
on blessed light
until All Saints begins.
