Blood Relativity

Edward Maietta

 

If a vampire is flying after you

at fifty miles per hour

And you’re running away—full tilt—

25 miles per hour

—This is back when you were young*—

then you haven’t much of a chance, sorry.

 

If you’re on a train traveling 200 miles per hour,

away from the vampire,

that sucker will likely pick on someone closer.

 

If you’re on a train traveling 200 miles per hour,

toward the vampire,

then I’ll miss you.
