Halloween Wrappers by Paula Puolakka

Paula Puolakka | Oct 18th, 2021 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

Fold me into your heart, “you old fart,”
and squeeze me like “George LeBay” would squeeze a girl
in the backseat of Christine,
the killer car.

From “Tree” to “Shark,”
from Fraggles to the Gelflings:
on Halloween, Jim Henson’s universe celebrates happy endings.

The diet of paper animals is too light for
Freddy Krueger, but on paper, even Freddy will
receive a kiss from the neighborhood sweetheart,
the mysterious new girl.
