Countopoulos


Joseph the Greek vampire
smiles at the sound of sirens,
pulls a thick black business card
from his long black coat.

He is a sociable vampire,
though he sleeps
through office hours.
Teeth bared,
he asks how I am
tells me about his weekend
gives me half of his
gourmet chocolate bar.
Vampires always know
how to win over women.

I don’t fret about my neck;
my blood is soda pop kitsch
and Joseph has a taste
for the finer things.

So is this why you're always trying to bite me? :)
