The Meat Locker

By L. Stewart Marsden



Do you hear?

Do you see?

Am I impaled by your wretched allurements?

Do I bleed in the dark?

Do I gasp to deaf ears?

Am I meat for the stripping?

Hooked and hung to drain?

To be cured and carved,

ground, devoured and digested?

Or ignored,

turning brown in the bin?
