Candy Corn

When the Autumn sun warms dying stalks Of corn with unkempt tassel locks. The earth turns from green to brown, Candy corn comes to town. A cackling witch stokes the ember Smoky spirits escape the timber. The leaves in trees turn an amber hue, Candy Corn, I yearn for you. Across my path a shadow creeps, Into day, nighttime seeps. My dreams turn to sugary storms. Candy corn, keep me warm. Before I die and decompose, Let me warm by your coals. Orange, white, yellow form, The wonderment of Candy corn.
