Friendly Vultures?

Friendly Vultures?

Karyn Indursky

Like a flesh eating virus
he sinks his fangs deeply
into your tree peach skin
for a savory taste of your
heavenly essence until you
deteriorate into nothingness.

Like an electrifying vampire
he seduces you with
lusty long eyelashes beckoning
your throaty pleading moans
until he undresses you from
the inside out and turns you
into crumpled piles of
crimson velvet.

Like a sea-monster blindfold
being ripped off as your Band-Aid
you're seeing truths you never
imagined, thought, dreamed, fantasized
existed, but now those very things
you thought you wanted to know
you wish you didn't, but so much for
a simple wish.
