Chocolate on Halloween

By Hina Gupta

Halloween is over, and you ate all the candy

One last piece of dark cranberry chocolate in your hand

The greasy chocolate melts in your palms

Hideous, sweaty and neglected

Black gravel wet and damp, stuck on the fingers,

From holding the bag too long

Fruit flies surround it like the leftover pumpkin

The chocolate mixes in with your crumbling hand

Cursed by the witches

It starts melting, as both your hand and chocolate

Degrade together

The last trick or treaters of the neighborhood come over

And laugh at its inability, to hold it together

They grab what’s left and run

Revealing the true horrors of Halloween
