At first glimpse of Laura’s photo for this week’s "15 Words or Less" poetry challenge, "mercury rising" popped into my mind. I’ve never seen the 1998 Bruce Willis thriller, so my apologies if it’s an unsavory association–ignorance…bliss, yes?

In youth, in ignorance,
Silvery, liquid beads
Were enigmatic delight–
Like sin sometimes….
