I feel my guts tear
Feel fear rasp my ribs
Can  you give all
Can  you give till
Nothings  exists
Till your marrow is
Sucked free and
You  are bone-empty
And  the deepest dusk
Fills your skull
Makes  your skeleton
Stand without wire.
Can  you feel your soul
List and keel,
Sickened beyond your
Power  to heal?
