In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, ‘Is it good, friend?’
‘IT’S BITTER — bitter,’ he answered,
‘But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because IT’S MY HEART.

― Stephen Crane, The Complete Poems of Stephen Crane
