A grandmother and her grandson. Now vampire. They don't talk about it.

A vampire's dream

After the Bite, scared and confused, I fled to my grandmother's cabin

There was blood on my collar

There was blood on my collar I didn't say, but she had to know

There was blood on my collar I didn't say, but she had to know She invited me inside

I go out hunting in the night, and bring back what I don't consume

I go out hunting in the night, and bring back what I don't consume She teaches me to butcher the meat

I go out hunting in the night, and bring back what I don't consume She teaches me to butcher the meat Cure it like my grandpa did

She lives on the knife-thin edge of knowledge and denial

I sit with her at dinner

I sit with her at dinner Pushing the food around my plate

I sit with her at dinner Pushing the food around my plate We don't talk about it

She says my hands are cold, and knits me mittens

She says my hands are cold, and knits me mittens As if I'll ever be warm again

She says my hands are cold, and knits me mittens As if I'll ever be warm again I wear them and want to cry

Each sunrise I doze off to the steady thump of her heart

In my dreams she calls me her favorite grandson again

In my dreams she calls me her favorite grandson again Hugs me and doesn't shudder

In my dreams she calls me her favorite grandson again Hugs me and doesn't shudder When I hug her back
