Eat

Eat
eat
to eat
feed
with teeth
with jaw
fangs
like dogs
wild dogs
wild
rabid dogs
with teeth
with jaw
eat
rip at the
flesh
tear from the
animal
feed
eat
and
regenerate

how alien is this form we take
this body,
this flesh,
how alien it appears
when we close our
eyes
to what we know
to be inherently true,
as so few of us
seem able to do.
How alien is this form
when we agree
that all we know
may not be so.

So eat,
with teeth
with jaw
sustain this form,
this alien body,
like dogs
tear at the flesh
of another
eat

Eat of the animal
of the fauna
and of the foliage
and of all the fruits
of the earth
and of all the roots
and of all the growths
of the dust
from whence you came

eat
tear
rip
sustain
regenerate
like dogs
wild dogs
rabid dogs
eat of the flesh
sustain this form
tear
rip
eat

and rejoice
