'In the Desert' by Stephen Crane

'In the Desert' by Stephen Crane: "

Stephen Crane

In the Desert

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 is bitter – bitter', he answered,
'But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart.'"
