Vampire of bats....



Cloud towers by ghostly, Mansions
Shadows, thickening like talons
Scrapes from back, reaching
and the bats
fly away...
Witjout me, that they wanted.
Scathed and untreated
Bubbles of blood
The smear of moon
in drifts of clouds...
Hunger, bitting at me...
Like terrific songs unwritten
and poems without an ending...
Unknowing, I creep to the ledge
of balconey...
And swell the tides
Crashing, against the rocks
below...
My precipice, beside the
Oceans, wooded reach...

And I dive...

One, with them...
