Here's a poem for Halloween from my unpublished poetry collection about candy--tentatively titled Sweet Dreams.
By Elaine Magliaro
I bite the licorice stick,
close my eyes and chew.
A cold autumn night,
Shadows of black cats,
The flutter of witches' capes,
Ghosts wailing in a graveyard...
All the spooky flavors of Halloween.
The Poetry Friday Roundup is at A Wrung Sponge this week.
