Vampire

by day the vampire is a normal person
by night the vampire is a normal person
all normality is vampirism
all existence is vampirism
consuming life to live life
like the serpent we breathe fog and death
on our own tale

how sharp are your teeth, grandma!
how red your eyes!
the bells are ringing, Sinatra is singing
your voice is eating me, man
that saxophone is killing me, man
the song just reared its ugly head
the guitar just devoured itself
the strings are now a hangman’s noose
the song bleeds gold dust into
the gaping maw

the song is over
suppose it thought it had more to say
but this vampire is probably health conscious
and needs to go the gym
or maybe it’s the vampire’s bathtub
and it wanted to go gardening or something
