Killer in Drag

Fugitive transvestites—desolate characters
Fleeing Transylvania—cute Balkan boyfriends
Eddie once saw a photo—of teenage Bela
Fell in love with him—when nobody cared
Cared about his eyes—his hands, his lips
The dialog of an aging—Prince of Darkness?

Let me count the ways—Eddie ad lib’s it
Fake dreams—faux longings & lust
Not bad back then—decorous melodramas
Surprisingly provocative—for being broke
Impressionable young—literary minds
Even today—wooed by the love affair
Caught up by—The Wake of the Red Witch?
