I Will Literally Pay You To Abduct Me

entry picture

This evening I am out walking
the static crackles
in the living room
and in the hallway
I lace my shoes
and go out walking

Tree-shapes calm me
dew drops kicked from blades of grass
this act cleanses things
I feel my fangs receding
sense the silence 
breathe back into me

Imagine the TV glow dimming
imagine the hatred in her eyes 
feel the black air clearing
but climbing the driveway to our place
I see red eyes waiting
and know things are worse since I went out walking

On nights like this I cannot win
on nights like this
I call out into the saucerless sky and scream
I will literally pay you to abduct me…
