Someone Wicked This Way Comes (A Halloween Innuendo Love Poem)

I want to grab your stem and carve you like a pumpkin,

Scoop the fleshy seeds out of your pulpy core

And roast them in my oven for a late-night snack.

I want to sculpt your grin like a jack-o’-lantern,

Using a flick of the wrist or a flip of the whim

To shape your lips into the mouth of my choice.

I want to create the cast of your eyes

As wicked and decadent,

And abandon you totally to a haunt of despair.

I want to hold my breath in baseless superstition,

As I lodge my pagan fire

In the hollow of your shell.

And I want to trick your treats

Under this absent midnight moon.

For this eve belongs to lost souls and sinners.

Confession and contrition

Are too holy for us now.
