Self and reality. Symbol and language. Myth and image. Memory and consciousness.
Dream and unreality: locus communis.

Vampire Sonnets ii

In fact, what a vampire sonnet confirms is the temporary values and methodologies of past generations are not entirely forgotten. The undead walks and romances the current history/society as a means of stealing its vitality, its energy— mosquitoes, biting flies, leeches, rabid dogs, the litany of typical associations. Are such verses suggesting memories cannot be forgotten? The past is retained forever in the head: experience cycling.
