Visitor Beware



The charged air
is felt in her bones,
in every cell, as he knocks.

He has come to call.

Pearls of sweat
cover her skin,
making bed linens sticky.

Filaments of gold
frame her face.
A work of art,

was his last thought.

P. Wanken


Inspired by The Sunday Whirl #92: charge, art, knocks, filaments, cell, sticky, pearls, bone, linen, air, beware, skin, and call; and posted for Day #78 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.
