the secret life of vampire housewives

i am surrounded with
cotton. organic foils and coils
of radiator springs that do not rust.
a sweaty palm lays the forehead
down, asprin. a Coke.
clean baseboards. messy living.
someone drinking out of the milk carton,
mustache: white.
the door opens and closes all day
come in! come in
the baby coos as if she took notes.
piles of folded laundry, a call from mom.
a message not to be late to guitar.
there in the sheepskin folds of domesticity 
behind the door behind the door behind the door
 - my vampire fangs:
covered in semen and blood.
