The Blood ParadeThe Blood Parade
When the evening began, they had all slithered in
With the men in their finest of poppy-red suits,
And the women wore gowns of Violets and scarlet
That shimmered in the moonlight, seeped through their flesh
As their trains pooled onto the floor.
They had gathered together for the Blood Parade,
The first of many to come.
Oozing from cars and down patio steps,
Surging through streets, trickling down cellar doors,
Flowing from room to room, all the while
Smiling impossibly empty wide smiles
That disappeared back inside of themselves
As soon as the gestures were formed.
In waves and embracesthrough each other they moved
in the wake of the memories of happier crowds;
Though each moan in their hearts burbled forth to a sigh.
And steaming from the cold, they began to rely
On those bottles that thinned their gelatinous skin,
And kept warm as they drew close together.
And each of them played their instruments,
Clotted silhouettes you could smell for
