He sprays it straight to his palm.
	I've been doing this for 20 years!
		He yells at his wife,
			Whom apparently is looking,
				Both pale and at his knife.
He sprays it again to his palm.
	You see! It smells good.
		 It tastes good.
		 It sounds good.
But his wife thinks otherwise,
	For nobody is going to steal any time out of her life.

I saw her legs,
	Jostling through a crowd,
		With nothing but a bag of eggs.
I saw the color bursting,
	From her hand
		To her hip and its tag,
I saw the brave life,
	From the egg
		To her neck and its gag.
I saw almost everything,
	Except the eggs and the legs.

Hunger Is

			When the train is thrown into old wreck.
Let it rain!
	It won't cure hunger, but the fear of what is to come.

		"Towards the tilting side,
		 Towards the milking bride."
And the wind blows,
	"Oh the wind blows,"
		Oh and every memory goes.
