Did you see the light outside the window?
Was there a man in the street wearing a
Black hood with an evil light behind his
Eyes, little one? Did you see him? He had
A flaming censor hanging from a pole
Hooked like Death’s scythe. Don’t look out the window.
He has already faded into night.
But if you must, do you see the neighbor’s
Roof? Do you see that small shape in the dark?
You can almost make out the eyes of the
Owl blank like two holes in a skull. El
Coco, Cucuy. The disembodied
Head. He is watching, my son. Licking his
Bony chops. Have you been good? Yes, I hope.
