CONSUMPTION

I ate death whole today,

in a ravenous void of gluttony and consumption.

Terrified, I ate death to soothe the ravaged  beast.

Swallowing, chewing in mastication madness,

inhaling thoughtlessly without mind,

Feeding the belly of the beast til I cried no more.

Sated, swollen and numb, I vow now to do this never more.

Tomorrow, I begin anew, eating only that which is life.

Tomorrow will my lips touch only  that which grows .

Tomorrow will I walk aware

Eating that which is alive,

Embracing life to live.
