Blue pale green
yellow pink and red

Old self-knowledge, the old fear
of blood loss, beware
of predators

and dream of vampires
dream of witches
who drink the blood

of unborn children
who drink the blood
of their mothers

the sweet blood
that also feeds mosquito eggs
the blood that gives life

to all animals, a body
is a trunk full of blood
blue pale green
yellow pink and red

to catch or for sale at farms
breeding stations and speciality stores

the leeches with a crop
at the pharmacy, without a prescription

oh, ticks will wait a year

five years if itís only then that you come
