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.
