Jack O’Lantern by Katrina Vanderberg

And after, when We went outside to look at her finished lantern from the road, I said I liked the way her light shone through the face that flickered in the dark. —“Jack O’Lantern,” Katrina Vandenberg in Atlas

This is an except from one of my favorite poems. John Green used it in the epigraph of his novel (and my favorite book) Paper Towns.

I’d highly encourage you to read the entire piece in Katrina Vandenberg’s collection called Atlas: Poems.
