On Dispensing Treats at Halloween

How hard is it

To disregard sugar rich chocolate treats

Near the front door



Damned hard

For a recovering chocoholic


Nuts and seeds

Fill in

Second stringers off the bench

Playing over their heads





Another knock


Thanks god, another handful depleted


Take more


Leave me no temptations


But then again


A test of resolve


Is a test worth taking

If I can overcome that

I might be able to overcome

Other foibles






And seek redemption

In your love
