Cold weather wets my memory,
makes me think I smell
bonfires and candycorn.
I dream of jack-o-lanterns
haunting me with their
yellow ochre grins,
and I wake knowing he's been here,
slipped through the blinds,
casting the room in burnt sienna.
The pungeance of roasting pumpkin
still hangs about my bed.
My first memory of autumn
is the hodgepodge PTA
hung a crepe paper amber.
Face paint ran into collars
after apple bobbing and the
caramel coated atmosphere
sent spirits flying into the night,
on the cold hayride
to the pumpkin patch in Potter's field.
In the queer light of that orange October moon
I felt his summons and I followed.
This harvest he has found me again.
Ten years later and I am
still a fresh pumpkin to his calling.
I feel him in my dreams,
he clips my stem, pulls off my crown
and carves the slopes and angles of my face
to his liking.
He breathes my sweet autumn odor,
knowing he has me,
and he'll take me once again
into crisp nights
to do his bidding.
