INVITATION TO PIE
THROW THIS RECIPE OUT

Once
I made a pumpkin pie

I scooped out the sticky part
You know
The icky, shredded goop
that surrounds the seeds
I knew to remove the seeds
because
well, I hadn’t seen any
in the can my mother used
to bake her pumpkin pie
Then I mixed the mess with milk and eggs
and baked it

I didn’t know
you were supposed
to use the pumpkin shell
I thought that was
for Halloween decorations

Yes, once I made a pumpkin pie
Once was enough
