sounding off

i sat on
the end
of the
onomato pier
then
CRASH,

WALLOP!
you bumped
and thumped
into me

SMASH!

i hit the water
with a splash.

Halloween: A Triptych from the Cryptych

as she carried a candle for him

Colin decided to go,
not as a phantom,
but a pumpkin lantern

he had scooped out
half his head
before he realised
