Apple Heart

A red delicious
Reflects off the glossy
Brown finish of the coffee table.
Fangs drip warm blood on the floor.

Thud thud

Inaudible droplets
Splash as heavy as heartbeats
To the vampire’s sensitive hearing.

The apple catches his eye,
He feeds himself a depraved wish,
He dreams that the apple is a human heart
Drizzling caramelized blood in the air of his cold grip.
