Predate Night

Asleep in your crypt until late,
You creep with a stiff-legged gait
And lurching down lanes 
In search of new veins
Bite deep, your addiction to sate.

Count Orlok (Max Schreck) drinks from the neck of Ellen Hutter (Greta Schröder) in Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror (F. W. Murnau; 1922). Title by post-dated David Cairns, host of Shadowplay.
