Animals Eating Animals

Back in 1986 I pinned a poem that ended with the phrase “animals eating animals eating animals eating animals eating animals eating” such was my distillation at the time, the meaning of earthly existence and I ponder that, older now, the truth still holds. I see its extrapolations and twistings inside out: stars eating stars/stars begetting stars, love eating love/love begetting love, silence eating silence/silence begetting silence, on and on and tonight I lie down into unknown dreams with the first sentences inadvertently written.
