I dream in cold blood
where air coagulates
and legs slip
on plastic chairs.
I like the way blond women
paint their toenails red
and wear tiny gold hoops
in their ears.
I can imagine them
on the chairs -
perfectly still as they
run out of things
to say to me.
So many
of the same questions -
and I just make up answers -
things about my mother
and their sons,
stories not found on TV
or in their magazines.

But they leave me gifts -
mementoes, really -
rings from their toes
lips carelessly left behind
on my glasses
and hair -
clips of fake yellow
and that shade of brown
you find underneath sinks.

I keep them all...

And dream in cold blood.

Francis Dolarhyde, creating his own reality since 1981. Or earlier.

LOL. Sometimes I wonder what my fascination with Serial Killers says about me...

I dunno, but perhaps you could turn it into bestselling novels. :D
