Still Life by Eric Skaggs

In the desert

I saw a creature, naked, bestial,

Who, squatting upon the ground,

Held his heart in his hands,

And ate of it.

I said, “Is it good, friend?”

“It is bitter-bitter,” he answered;


“But I like it

“Because it is bitter,

“And because it is my heart.”

— Stephen Crane
