Overcome It

(Strange Tales #8)

“I can’t express it exactly,”
The Venetian Vampire said one afternoon,
“But eating solid food often makes me
Feel spiritually choked, regardless of what it is.

“I try to think, This will pass. I concentrate on the motion
Of the boat and if I’m lucky, I overcome it,
But still I seldom eat more than half of anything
Except small portions or a glass of blood-colored wine.”

“I begin attentively by cutting every portion in two
And imagine I’ll eat the rest later.
Sometimes that’s possible,
Sometimes I can’t stuff it in.”
