Eat The Living

The best things to eat teem with life

Cheeses that stink with the odor of decay

Drinks that effervesce with gasses of digestion

Leaves still firm and green with energy

Fruits that beg us to carry their seeds within us

These things, if not alive, swarm with life

These creatures mingle with the life within us

The duties of these creatures is known only by them

We benefit from their energies, they eat things we cannot

Without them we whither and soon join our food

as their food
