Four – Monsters

Monsters celebrate in most
usual ways. Simple parties,
with decorated cakes and
candles, or sometimes piñatas,
a margarita machine, and a taco
guy. Though, they celebrate the smallest
things: water running down the
gutter carrying old receipts and
dried up leaves, finding pennies
pressed in the year of their
birth, an ivy vine coiling around
the cold metal pole of the stop
sign. They’ll celebrate almost
anything that proves they’re
beautiful. Their menacing mouths
opened wide and indomitable,
whispering simple wonder
at themselves and the world.
