thousands of murders already done / dare doubt

you hatch for slaughter/ dare hear the coddle and coo?

find a snake tooth /  find the snagging beak /  rip through  many layers

/ cry like a baby the mother can’t stand

spit nipples out / unsatisfied

be unspeakable longing   / for some other /  some who do

/  some do  /break through  / blink cold /gape  stunned  /wonder  /

which lives / from all the stunning array / can be saved / seeing

we are all alike my people/ all alike / saying this

brings tears / the juice of heart  / proving truth

we live to hear / we act
