Senza Grazie

lactating crimson for a demonic brood
that carnivorously sucks
an unquenchable hunger
in its bones and deeper
greedily latched
pointed teeth interlocked around the bleeding prize
no creamy white, dreamy white this
no symbolism of mother’s milk –
the vital force flowing
from progenitor to offspring –
this is the real thing
deep red, profondo rosso
for the throat
no special glands required
no relationship, no thanks
pure giving, direct
a blood sacrifice
death of one to the heart of another
its given to the last, remorselessly…
