An innocent college visit

Kayleigh, Amber, Teena

Turns into a track meet

Who is faster

Who does Bob get

Kayleigh stumbles

Bob has a mid-afternoon taste

Arises with a slight fever

Wobbling on her feet

Clammy skin

Blood on her wrist

She screams

“Unggghhhhhh” comes out

The glint appears

She shuffles, a new convert

(dedicated to Kayleigh, another poet and writer)
