how to watch twilight

In front of the lens are
some nice vampires,
sexy sparkly.
that's half the movie.
that there are vampires
behind the camera.
Maybe the director,
maybe stephenie meyer,
maybe an actor or two.

Imagine they're not
sexy sparkly
but the bad kind.
Every word they write
and curve of cheek they light
is calculated
to make their food come to them

Watch Twilight
and imagine Dracula at the premiere
looking out of his box
into the theater
at the spellbound girls.
He is wearing a lobster bib.
