Famine

Hear
Sixty-six thousand four hundred and twenty-eight; seven hundred and thirty
two; ten thousand, tow point five; twelve to the twelfth; pi; oh eleven; six four
oh four;
Infinite negative
Divide naught by
One.
Hear
(With. . . by. . . close. . . where. . . under. . . now. . . soon. . . to. . . here
(
(Me. You.

(Chew retch, gnaw knots, tongue blunts, crunch which, suck dust, crave numb,
(grovel
One.
Hear
Still
Breath without milk
Breath one breath, shallow as light
If there were leaf and mist to forever flow it would be
As then as light had opened
And we heard true note beyond eye
Tell, bone, toll, lost, skull, chew, stone, count, account.
Bound before birth in warmth and blood we learn to mourn
Drought nought flood nought pest nought rot rat rut out
Ah! Aaai! Oh! Oh!
(Silence)
None.
