I love to plant the seeds
and care for my pumpkins as they grow.
When they are ripe and imperfect
I liked to take them into my kitchen,
where it is warm and cozy .
And then as my cats watch with curiosity
I take a knife and plunge it into my pumpkins
I have grown with tender loving care
and scrape their guts out with a wooden spoon.
Sometimes I even roast and eat their seeds.
I like to make them crunch.
