Pumpkin Carving at Public School

Hands knead orange slimy goo, grab
fistfuls of mealy seeds and dump
them on old newspaper for later use

spitting contests and pumpkin pie
perhaps a little guess-timation;
how many do you think there are?

as eager students gather ‘round
a cooling collection of leaves
golden, red and brown; unique.
