This puny pumpkin for sale at the farmer’s market

has no “pie” sticker, no painted face, no front-stoop girth.

It should be labeled  “Pluto” : not pumpkin enough

to be called a pumpkin on chilly October nights.

  1. Poor pumpkin! Loved this one!

  2. I know—puny pumpkin is so pitiful :).

    I mistakenly read Pluto as “Pluot” at first—also kind of works, in an odd way.
