a little hunger

oh, here’s a heart
chamber by chamber
vein by vein
blood stained fingers
here i sit

oh, here’s a heart
a thump thump
a quick quick
a dull thud
as i sit

oh, here’s a heart
is it mine?
is it yours?
i took it out
from where?
i don’t know

oh, here’s a heart
and i’m the hungry thing
i take a bite
and remember your face
