A Poetry Sporadical of Repeating Forms

Talking to a Vampire About Ethics

by Juleigh Howard-Hobson

I thought that you knew better.
Let her
Go, or, before she’s died,
Exactly what she’s going to do,
Before you
Commit her, like you’ll want to,
To a life of being undead—
Lonely, thirsty, always unwed.
Let her decide before you.
