The hunger strategy is not working:

Starving the home as I am starved

Better to serve it as I am wrought
Bathe it as I am dowsed
Clothe it as I am clung

To give—yes—to give
to retort
as if dumb

O, something somewhere has ended:

But not here where my belly
spawns a soul

Watch me sit while my gut constructs bone
Hear me speak while my trunk accretes brain
Think me filled while my core builds tongue

I transform—yes—transform
into skull
