Sacramental Revelation


I want to taste fresh blood,

but a bite on your lips

or a kiss

on the vein of your wrist

will never suffice,

for I need a slice

of jugular

to satiate

the source of this passion.


I want to burn the sky,

but a bomb built on earth

or a burst

of nuclear fission from above

will not do the job,

for I’m hard

as a rock

with the urge

to press more than little red buttons.


I want to feast on raw flesh,

but that white cotton dress

or the sex

promised underneath its secrets

are not what I seek,

for the scent

of your skin

will not even begin

to kill the call of this craving.
