The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


The Invisible
by Amy Zoellers

They wearied of being invisible


under the water,

skin and flesh long forgotten now.

The mothers all warned

as they had been warned:

Don’t trail your fingers

Don’t dip your feet




the hidden dead,

(flesh and skin long forgotten)

are weary of being invisible.


What cravings may haunt them tonight?

To be seen at last?

To reveal themselves?

To welcome you—sweet longed-for,

fresh-velvet-plump company—

into their bone-arms and silt-lair?


Trail your fingers in the water

(if you dare)

Drench your toes in the canal

(and despair).
