A Dark Streak

I’ll sleep with one eye open, so I can
see the monsters and freaks. I’m not

afraid when a black cat crosses my
street. And I invite the things that go

bump in the night. I have a dark streak,
but Halloween is not my Christmas, even

if I do like the idea of bat-shaped ornaments
and a tree that’s black.

Success! You're on the list.
