Blood Red Moon

The moon is dripping blood tonight.

I wonder if I’ll get a drop.

I wait outside the movie hall

after the midnight show.

A huge chunk of meat whistles at me,

flexing his biceps in the red glow.

I raise an eyebrow

and walk towards the trees.

I can hear his footsteps

right behind me.

The moon is dripping blood tonight.

I’m sure to get a drop.
