Centreville by Lee Evans

Lee Evans | Dec 8th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments



Seven pink flamingos,
one for each day of the week,
smirk at every passerby
commuting through your town.

Every Halloween they don,
(just for the “hello-ween” of it!),
those ghostly pillowcases cut
with holes for their painted eyes—

mimicking trick-or-treaters,
who wander on their candied ways
to doorsteps where their names are known,
despite their best disguise.
