come along, you vampires

and feast on my flesh
for nothing else will do
and my body is so accustomed
to losing blood
to scratches
to cuts
to all kinds of wounds
both superficial and within

come drink from me
and take this tainted blood
the red cross won’t take it
and i don’t want it
but if it will sustain you
it is yours
and when they give me new blood
perhaps it will know
how to be a healthy woman
and i in turn
will become one
