It was unusually warm out
For October. Halloween
was his favorite holiday.
This one would be different.
His face was hallowed:
His lips were light pink almost white,
His skin was chapped and falling apart,
His eyes looked big but sunken in.
His skin seemed to sag;
With no muscles left to attach to.
His joints big and bulging-
A human skeleton.
Sitting on the couch –
Not knowing what to say next.
What do you say to a dying man?
Unusually warm out
For October. It is Halloween
Once more This one would be different.
