All’s Hollow

we ignore the remains
cast off in haste
from bloody limbs
and pointy hats
to styro skulls
and dimestore tiaras

blown by the wind
washed down the driveways
and sidewalks
into the storm-drains
and sewers
where everything floats

it will all freeze through the winter
it will all rot through the spring
