(theme: metamorphosis for poetic asides)

The pumpkin-
palm of hand sized,
not good for pie baking,
as are her weightier siblings-
now sits in window,
all dolled up
with purple googly eyes,
a silver pipe cleaner smile,
and crazy Afrocentric curls,
capped with turquoise feather;
She’s transformed from vegetable
to stand in for novel main character
in the space of a Halloween party.
