Halloween and Daylight Savings Time

Fete a cerebration: the dead return,
but famished, doorbell to doorbell.
A carved head glows from inside,
so we carve an hour from the night
to feed to darkness. Somehow
this makes our light show up earlier.
Colder, more answerable,
and we like this. We can fix
the stars, we think,
by cheating
this way.
