And because it is my heart


In the desert

I saw a creature, naked, bestial

who, squatting upon the ground,

held his heart in the hands,

and ate of  it.

I said, ” Is it good, my friend?”

“It is bitter–bitter” He answered;

” But I like it

“because it is bitter,

“and because it is my heart”

–Stephen Crane
