Starvation Looks

like an old man in a filthy fur coat
shambling through emptiness

lead-heavy legs, skin sagging empty folds

collapse. Rest a while, then
one more effort—a trash can

maybe there’s a bit of food—

too decayed to swallow. Spittle
runs down his jaws

stumbling full of emptiness

black eyes stare
