Dr. Appleseed

The celiac vampire is always hungry.

"When I sleep, I dream of flour," she tells her therapist.

He suggests that she take up gardening.

The celiac vampire rises like bread dough
and rips the Adam's apple from her therapist's throat.

Now, she dreams of orchards.

Wicked indeed I woke my cats, laughing, I couldn't live without bread so I'd be a very sick celiac-vampire

My daughter has celiac so I really enjoyed this. And sent it to her. She laughed.
