  4. I take pride in my sucking.

    Here is my favorite ever pumpkin related poem. Written by my favorite ever Chicago unknown Poet, Ed Peterson.

    Waking Jack

    Said Sophie to Jack,
    “Do you feel
    distant from your family?”

    & the answer shot
    “of course,”

    and when the gun refrained
    Jack’s mouth collapsed
    on gums, the way a week’s decay
    makes the Jack-O-Lantern appear
    more human and frightening


    Fold up the faces
    Don the ritual smocks
    Pinch closed all the beaks
    Flock silent as raindrops

    Then, if you please,
    the speeches and finger foods
    freckled cubes of cheese.

    “Jack was so plump & round
    & I loved him from every angle.
    He was my march of time
    my most effective line.
    He was my helplessness, my fear.
    Queer how the snarl
    on his lip endeared
    right until the end
    & I have never grown a pie
    & I have never known a friend
    never nothing really
    until this very moment, when
    now I know it all,
    free & sickening as the fall.”

    Sophie’s face crumpled
    (weakened, but as art stronger still
    for the shrinking of sly smiles,
    grimaces of rot, likely as not
    from a week on the sill)

    yes, it crumpled, pushing wrinkles toward her lips
    when Sophie lit a cigarette
    then smoothed the black skirt on her hips.

  7. Hey that’s a great pumpkin! You’ll remember that work of pumpkin art more clearly in 20 years than you will remember any specific day at work from any day in your life… unless you are a professional shark wrestler.
