The Slave-Girl and the (micro-poetic) Vampire

Another collection of haiku twittering from @AlinaMeridon. This is themed, however, based around my novelette The Slave-Girl and the Vampire, as an experiment with AuthorBee’s storify (see here):

a country mansion
twelve girls in heels and corsets
one vampire mistress

a monstrous secret
bound in chain and basement deep
restless and hungry

rings through her nipples
little bells her punishment
tinkling merrily

three strikes with her crop
courtyard echoing loud screams
bare thighs striped with blood

Men! – myths and monsters…
patriarchy forgotten
(ancient history)

vampire in a suit
outwardly respectable
dark cravings concealed

predatory eyes
ruthless killer; barely leashed
a heartbeat away

pleasure is prelude
climax is preparation
it sweetens the blood

City of Sappho
lesbian utopia
(homonormative)

one chance at escape
landscape of weeds and ruins
no hope of success

two girls all alone
desperate flight for freedom
sharing body heat

    Lovely collection. Enjoyed. It’s interesting that “homonormative” is the outlier in the poems, the non-exotic is the odd ball.

    • Frank says:

      I’m twisting the word a little. I imagine that in a world without men, women who desire women will be a privileged class – although I imagine there would be lots of diversity in other ways…

  2. Frank says:

    disobedience
    rewarded with nipple rings
    there is no escape

    rings and silver bells
    make a sullen girl merry
    how bright her hatred
