it's the fact:
their broad leaves lap it up like milk
and turn it into twigs.
Fish eat fish,
Lamps eat light,
and when their feast has starved their filament
So do we,
and all sweet creatures-
Cats eating horses, horses grass, grass earth, earth water-
except for the distant Man
who inhales the savor of souls-
Let us all strive to resemble this giant!
