I dreamed that you and I were vampire hunters
like Wesley Snipes in “Blade,”
and we were setting out on our first mission
but I, as usual, had not done the homework and was unprepared
somehow the two of us were separated from the group
and lost in the forest
and I cried because we both knew we were going to die there.
so you made love to me for comfort,
because what is more alive than sex?
and as you were kissing me I awoke,
alone in my bed and confused.
were you the one
to rescue me?
