Marlowe: "bad revolting stars?"

April Poetry Month

April Poetry month. Stephen Crane themed this year, because I like him and because his poems are short. Later I may throw in some other poetry as well, if I'm not too lazy.

(Untitled)
by Stephen Crane

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial
Who, squatting upon the ground
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter -- bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."
