You Know Who


Someone please stop them. Garlic,
silver bullet, holy water, whatever.
They are holding pop culture
hostage. And their ransom grows.

About Daniel Romo

Author of Apologies in Reverse (FutureCycle Press, 2019), When Kerosene's Involved (Mojave River Press, 2014) and Romancing Gravity (Silver Birch Press, 2013). I'm partial to prose poems. Alliteration. And fragments.

  1. Oh! I forgot the rule of not inviting vampires in! 🙂 I have to see The Lost Boys movie again, it’s been too long.

  2. Why yes, holy water was very effective in The Lost Boys! Would it work if tossed at a vampire covered in body glitter? That I haven’t a clue…

  3. Did you hear about the girl who wrote in to Universal Studios and berated them for (their remake of) The Wolfman, because they obviously, and poorly, ripped off werewolves from the Twilight films?

    …yeah. Yeah. Even with the tangential supernatural creatures it’s getting out of hand.

  4. I’d go with holy water or a stake to the heart. A bullet might leave you with a sparkly mess. 😉

  5. AMEN. I’ll make the bullet if you’ve gotta gun. Even Charlie Huston for pete’s sake. Pearl

  6. yea, but it’s just pop culture
    let ’em have it
    drag it into the night
    tear it’s entrails out
    suckle every last drop of blood
    and leave it’s nonsensical existence in the wilderness
    bones bleaching in noon day sun
    mayhaps attracting the vultures of this world
    carry with them their war and profits
