Diving for Oranges

By: The Vampire Sweets


I was seething with anger

as I spread my arms and watched the serpent grow around my waist

I had a taste for oranges

And I leaned forward into the grove

that seemed to magically grow closer

The breeze seemed strange as I flew though the air

I saw a blurry, green carpet just before

a heavy thud closed the door of my body, and turned out the lights.
