Spring came early to this town,
woke us from our hoary skins.
And crowded we, our breeding ground,
my friends.

Well, I have seen this start before
but always leave before it ends:
the neighborhood become a swarm,
a cloud devouring on the wind.

And no one taught me how to pray
for others’ pain to comprehend.
But I have loved you in my way,
my friends.

And all are feasting, all are feast
who feel the hunger setting in.
Come join the all-consuming beast.

I would be spared if born above.
But buried as I am beneath,
the self discards itself for love
and eats, my friends.

Love demands of me my form,
and in my place, love's form descends.
And we were lovers in this storm,
my friends.
