Poem: dressed up as a pirate on Halloween

6 inklings - saturday

there were boardwalks
across the plank
a plunge in icy water
pops in the summer heat
she was incomplete without him
hooked against his arm
candy canes in December
and fireworks in July
tied up in the dank cellar
the creaking and hollowed wails of
ghosts in October
pumpkin pie
rated R movies in the dark of night
she clung close to his skin
softly asking for parley
he opened the treasure chest
the dead casket
and with one aching grasp
stole her breath away
