For the last three Octobers, the couple of weeks before Halloween I’ve written a series of poems called: Scary Costume Ideas. I meant to start on the 15th (two weeks prior) but alas, I will start today….please use the comment section to supply your own Scary Costume Ideas.
Scary Costume Ideas # 18
Genetically Modified Corn
the insect who ate the GMO corn whose belly exploded
high fructose corn syrup
a toddler with a leaky intestine
my attention span
the memory of the American electorate
the weight reading of my scale last Saturday
A seed cloud
A broken geiger counter
the irregular spot on my skin
Paul Ryan’s bicep
The orgasm Ann Romney never had.
