I am the whale of poems

Go ahead and eat me
For you are the reasons of teeth and claw
You are the cries of reality is
You are a killer of whales

Because you can
Because you care not with your mighty ways
Because you are a hunger that feeds aimlessly
Because you love greed
Because your ego is sick
Because you die daily into nothing in order to exist
Because your mother is your food
Because you are lifeless at the heart of the world feeds you
Because your future is futile
Because your truth has no known equilibrium
Because you love these words
Because you feel them stab you
Because you bleed
Because your extinction matters not
Because you want to be as brave as dying
Because … you understand this poem still

You have no cause to own the deeds that you are
Because life’s carcass holds no sacred value to you
Because you cannot kill yourself with your own reasons
Because you are a coward in the oceans of selfishness
And I am just the whale of poems

And you hate poems
And you do not even care if your own soul is hunted

For you are the predator who fears to admit
You are the very same prey
