HER HALLOWEEN

She was living in Chicago at the time.

She and her boyfriend were at the laundromat folding laundry
when a mother and son walked in.

The mother had whiskers drawn on her face in marker
The son had a circle drawn around his face in marker.

These were their costumes.

The mother walked up to the laundromat attendant
held out her purple plastic bag
and said,
"tree-tree-tree-tree-tree!"
