I heard the car door slam and
Immediately looked at the clock.
“I knew he’d be early” I thought
Without any shock.
I heard his step on the path
And checked my reflection again.
“He’s here” I called to Mitch.
I unlatched the door and then
He ran for his taxi,
His face the colour of chalk,
I guess our costumes were good,
for the Zombie Walk.
