Urban Vampires or Townies by Zac Thraves

They live among us
dine on our entrails
they shop in Primark
to blend in
they spend mornings in Wetherspoons
to build an appetite
they stare out the window
vultures glare
they speak strange tongue
and fast
pockets of English fall from lips
they dip fingers
into yolks of fried eggs
they smother meat
in ketchup
their smiles reveal
dancing maggots on yellow teeth
they walk with a limp
down dim back alleys
they wait for the sun
to fall
