let's sit in the kitchen and organize all the candy we've collected in the cupboards, even if half of it's expired. we can unwrap each chocolate bar so they'll all melt into puddles, slightly different shades of brown. we'll never want to eat sugar again, like our half-baked version of Halloween when we ate each piece and the bottoms of our pillowcases-turned-trick-or-treating bags were littered with the colorful wrappers, not color-coded at all. let's keep it simple and make it harder on ourselves, once more.
I hope you enjoyed this poem! It was kind of inspired by the fact that Halloween’s really not that faraway at this point. Before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us! Please feel free to leave feedback and writing challenges in the comments. Stay safe and healthy out there.
