The Vampire of Clarke Quay

Hollywood hasn’t got the market cornered on vampires

As bumboats putter by the river shore
tourists walk like wallets of fresh meat.

“Good evening, come try some Indian.”

They think I’m just a local pavement tout
but I’m of older stock. Before your spice trade
Vampire Inc. had spread across the globe.
