Resurrection Blues

Vampire Count bites women, falls on something sharp.

Eternal Thoughts

I had a dream the other day

that I went to Heaven

and They said

you don’t need things here.

And I thought “What?”

No Burt’s Bees lip balm?

No pocket-sized tissue packets?

No sleep aids?

But then They let me

go back home to “visit.”

So I grabbed a blue Signo gel pen

and then another,

because I thought

I might want to write something

in all eternity.
