What They Say About Vampires

It’s not true, what they say
about vampires. One jumped through my kitchen window
yesterday, started mincing garlic with a paring knife
like it was nothing. I stood in the doorway,
speechless. When he served the spaghetti, I sat.
When he asked for the salt, I passed it.
When he bit my neck, I let him.
It was noon and the daylight did nothing.
