this is the tale of a youth's terror
who let what befell him befall him again. only thus
could he drive the heartless woman home to the site
hunting, memory. doglike, nastagio,
a pet slobbering for entrails at the frame's edge
MAN IS EVIL. HIS FLESH SMELLS BAD
BUT TWO DAYS LATER (THOUGH GOOD HUNTERS
DESERVE A GOOD MEAL).
now see what you saw, the crackest confusion
before the invention of fire.
