straight to the heart (20171103)

i offered an open door
and like the vampire you are
you came in and starting
drinking everything in sight

i’ve learned from all
those hammer horror movies
that there’s no easy way
to rescind an invitation

my best bet is to stock
the fridge with curated holy water
and spread garlic aioli on everything
like a pretentious asshole

while you’re busy avoiding
i’ll be sharpening my stakes
and looking for a mallet

  1. This is classic Charles Payne! I love the way you reveal the true essence of people/things through the vehicle of hyperbolic fantasy. “Garlic aioli spreader” smacks of “pretentious asshole” in the most fundamental sense possible. Lol!
