Feed the beast

Unhook the stars this time.
Swallow the sun.
Careful that hand that feeds.
Food for the beast.
Swallowing hearts like no-one’s business.
Gobbling my soul like sweets.
Those knives covered with sugar.
Arranged in the mouth so delicate.
Do not cross the line. Do not feed the animals.
Dancing like monkeys on sticks.
Throwing sparks and sulphane, pieces of God and my pound of flesh.
Strip my bones of these bite marks.
Give me your eyes so I can watch this from a far.
Your animal heart, always hungry.
Forever feeding the beast.
