Watery Grave

Night birds shriek---
as if waking from hellish dreams.
Their haunting echoes migrating 
across the cold rippling darkness.

Gaunt man skims across 
black waves that are liquid shadow,
thick as Transylvanian soil.

light up the night 
like twin stars born of hell
as he makes his way through this 
labyrinth of ocean, searching 
for his bloody nectar,
till he is chastised by the flickering golden threat 
of a lethal dawn which ends tonight’s quest
for the only drink that will soothe
his eternally parched throat.

And slowly 
as the chill in the air is burned away,
as light drinks shadow 
and waves begin to reflect the pulse 
of a new day,

predator of this gothic sea, 
returns to the comforts of his 
old world casket,
which lies buried beneath 
these solemn gravestone waves:

lost a hundred and twenty seven years ago
on a luxury liner’s tragic voyage 
from dark, dying Europe
with its talk of vampires 
and werewolves
and demons of the night,

this mysteriously sunken vessel 
the authorities never could explain, 
and the corpses,
blood drained from them
so completely.

Mere whispers, 
all that have ever found their way 
to shore, carried by the syncopations 
of lapping anonymous waves.

And now each evening he patrols 
these ominous waters seeking 
refugees not unlike himself, 
whom he might feed upon,
for they will not be missed
by this country that welcomes 
the world’s huddled masses.

No, they will be convinced 
to accept his hospitality
as well they should, 

in this, 
the palace 
of his beautiful 

watery grave.
