Writer's Diary #9: Pumpkins

Hardly Poe, hardly finished, but at least it's time appropriate:


Pumpkin

I don't know why you're
being so unreasonable.
We've all had our heads
cut open.......our brains pulled out
left with stupid grins
for someone else
and cheap amusement.

So what if
it is November?
You were enjoyed.


(In the "cut open" line, I meant to leave a space as a caesura, not the dots, but again blogger won't let me leave a space.)

This is great, John. I'm no poetry critic but I know what I like. I laughed out loud! Terrific sarcasm and irony.

I can just see you saying this! :)

Poor little pumpkin.
