The Dark Life

The Forbidden Fruit: Babylon, Mother of Vampyres
18" x 24" acrylic on canvas


There exist among Us
a lineage of Souls
trapped in Dark Lives
after eating
The Forbidden Fruit

They dwell
in a self-involved reality
of consumption without consciousness
& ambition bled dry of ethics,
ruling over the Spiritually Dead

And Their inheritances
of ill-gotten fortunes
stretch back into antiquity,
eons long:

Blue Bloods.
