Welcome Mindful Poetrymembers and anyone else who finds this poem.


“I feel like a human pinata. The disappointing thing is, no candy is going to spill out..”

Katie Couric


Halloween Nightmare (abecedarian)


Almond-Joy, Baby-Ruth
Charleston Chews

Dancing energetically,
frenetically, gastronomically

Hershey’s-Milk-Chocolate
Ice-cubes
Jujubes, Kit-Kat
Laffy-Taffy, Milky-Way

Now only Pepto quells

Reeses-Pieces, Snickers
Twix

Upset vengeance
Why X-ray?

You’re zooming!
