Weekly Scribblings #39: October Thrills (posted by Magaly)
"Greetings, word lovers. Magaly here, writing to you while high October-is-coming! fumes. In case you haven’t noticed, I might be more than slightly obsessed with the tenth month of the year. I could blame it all on the thought of pumpkin chili and skull cakes, or on the all-around overabundance of witchy hats. But that wouldn’t be fair or true, since the fact that I will get to delight in scary prose and creepy poetry happens to be just as guilty.
I wish for everyone to create new poetry or prose inspired by anything October."
Amidst gold, orange and brick red leaves,
cinnamon scent, and apple cider,
costumes are being readied
for anxious children
impatiently waiting for Halloween.
On crisp, cold evening in twilight
beware of monsters who lurk behind
leafy trees–Ghouliani, Pursed Lips
Mitch, and The Don of Con. Cover
your ears so you cannot hear
their gibberish talk. They will
steal your candy for their bloated
bellies. Be on the lookout
for liars and thieves. They have
two-sided mouths, and bleed from each.
