Troubles of a Vampire in the Digital Age

Portrait of a Vampire
Kevin Barry

By daylight I’m toast
By sunlamp I’m roast
By digicam or Instagram
I’m banished

And to you poor folks
Who send friendly pokes
Like a Bat in the night
I’ve vanished

Without a profile pic
To check out and click
My web presence?

So I’ll sit here so still
With all of my will
Until this self portrait
Is finished
