Stray Cat (Prompt 18)

Somewhere in her later teens
Halloween came unexpectedly
Unprepared and scared of being the only person
Out of costume
She strapped on black corset
Had best friend cinch it
Black fur coat
Leather leggings
Cat ear headband

Skinny stray cat wandering up streets
Trick or treating
Heart beating from candy or cocaine
Always slick and strutting
Looking for a home
Needs more sweetness than chocolates
Less doors being closed
