Hunt

Exquisite terror, heart that beats;
I take my flesh, I take my meat,
To hunt, to kill, the pleasure black,
Lose oneself, when prey to track.

Pitiful pleading, knees that bend;
I take my blood, to hell I send,
To chase, to catch, the horror dark,
Find oneself, when prey is marked.

Animal feeding, life that goes;
I take my joy, the devil knows,
To eat, to drink, my need is true,
Be oneself, when I see you.
