humani-vore-ing

“HEY YOU!!! yeah !YOU!”
“what’s the matter friend”
“you gnaw’n on’me FOOL! dat’s what
and i aint yo’ damn friend”
“what you mean i’m gnawing on you!”
“!what the fuck you think i’m meaning!”
“you’re just imagining things

“i aint imagining a goddamn thing!
and i aint here begging for no hand-out”
“excuse me but i really don’t know what . . .”
“LOOK AT DIS SHIT RIGHT HERE!
!!!I’M ALREADY BLEED’N!!!”
“no way . . . this simply cannot be happening!”
“dis sho’ aint no damn ketchup!”
all right just just . . . just calm down
i’m going to tell you what to do”
“who duh fuck you think you is”
“sssh! please . . . you need to listen . . .
bright and early in the morning
when you standing there in your mirror”
“how i gon be doing that!”
“will you just be quiet and listen”
“how some body gon be somewhere
standing in dey goddamn mirror!”
“anyway just tell me what you’re seeing”
“‘spose i say i aint seeing nothing

“what else can all of us in here be saying”
“WHAT IN DUH HELL YOU TALK’N ‘BOUT!”
“NOTHING!!! motherfucker !!NOTHING!!
because you caint be saying nothing
‘bout nothing except nothing!”
