Uni says, "Intriguing!"
Intriguing it is indeed and no one says/writes it better!! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!
This reminds me of Jack-a-lanterns, scarecrows and other scary effigies just human enough to remind us of our own mortality.
Your October poems are leading us wonderfully - and spookily - towards Hallowe'en, my friend. I am enjoying them so much.
I might get this into my nightmares tonight.
WE have a bit of halloween stuff here, copied from USA, but not the pumpkin thing (our pumpkins have VERY tough skins). So until I read the comments, I thought this was a poem about ageing. Deliciously dark either way!
I don't know what it means, but it's damned fun to say aloud.
Not sure I got the meaning but the last lines present a vivid if scary image...
Thinking of jack-o-lanterns draws all the spooky images together, but I also enjoyed trying to figure out which slant spaces in our faces could chase away the crow lines ... haha.
I think of scarecrows or carved pumpkins...Love it!
What a sharp flint Octoberal. Keep 'em plunging.
Love every black and haunted word--of course! It's the time when the dead stare back at us in the mirror, or wherever else they care to put themselves--really like this one, MZ.
Good lord, this brings to mind a whack book from my youth called Corporal Crow. I mean whack. I'd imagine that's not what you were thinking about, but if you were? :)
