Sunday Snippet, Short Poem, Pumpkin by Bill Chance

“I will defend pumpkin until the day I die. It’s delicious. It’s healthy. I don’t understand the backlash. How did pumpkin become this embarrassing thing to love but bacon is still the cool flavor to add to everything? I don’t have anything against bacon; just don’t come after pumpkin like it’s a crime to love an American staple.”

― Anna Kendrick, Scrappy Little Nobody

Pumpkin

(short poem fragment)

PUMPKIN

I saw a car
an old car
paint faded, worn to
a flat pumpkin seed color
written in the windows
with white shoe polish
FOR SALE
800 DOLLARS
RUNS GREAT!!
a tattered frazzled worn woman sat
in the front seat
broken down
on the freeway
at seven in the morning
