Sticky jack-o-lantern teeth
protrude from the bloody carcass
Born from a seed and a hope
It bloomed brilliantly, bloated and bulging
from the vine until
snapping crisply to be sliced acutely
A dissection
Discretely split and spread
Sweet ruby juice dripped from our chins
onto our shirts, red stains
A rookie murder
