And so I nearly starved to death.
I wondered at the emptiness inside.
It seemed to me from rib to rib
Was canyonesque, and I couldn’t fathom
Why my head was light
And foot so grave.
And so the hollow place within
Called out to caloric nutrients
To come and be tasted,
To let me see their goods.
But the bigger part of me,
The unseen spaces between the bits,
Calls out to you,
And let me be consumed.
